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.
Trumbull Community Women is actively seeking volunteers 18 and over who reside in Trumbull or a nearby community. 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. Community involvement also includes holiday baskets for a local family in need. For more information, contact us at email@example.com.
