SUPPORT OUR PROJECTS: DONATE NOW
Trumbull Community Women’s membership covers a wide spectrum of ages, lifestyles, occupations, and different stages of life. But we come together with a mutual goal: to reach beyond ourselves and find the time to give back to this town we all love. The friendships that have developed among our members because of this spirit is one of the best things about belonging to the club.

The non-profit organization sponsors and participates in numerous local events including; the Children’s Creative Center tent at Trumbull’s Arts Festival; a Veteran’s Day celebration breakfast; Tidy-Up Trumbull, free document shredding, food drives and more.

Trumbull Community Women experienced a huge loss last week. Our dear friend Sheila Hayes passed away unexpectedly leaving us all bereft. We mourn her passing and celebrate the joy she brought to each of us through her wit and wisdom. She will be missed by us all. Sheila’s family has requested donations in her name to TCW. It is our hope that we can establish a scholarship in Sheila’s name to a student who plans a career in creative writing. If you wish to make a donation please use this link so we can direct the funds to the right place. https://secure.anedot.com/trumbull-community-women/sheila_hayes
