Just because it’s summer vacation for some, the Mill Creek Women’s Club does not stop its work. The Club continues its twice-weekly volunteer work on behalf of its prime charity, the YWCA Pathways for Women Working Wardrobe Boutique in the YWCA’s Everett Regional Office.
The Mill Creek Women's Club members are on the job year round to assist low-income women and women facing numerous economic challenges in Snohomish County by enabling them to acquire clothing for job interviews and preparation for attendance at school.
The Working Wardrobe Boutique is accessed by women who are clients of the YWCA on an appointment-only basis. Their ability to obtain good quality, fashionable clothing for job interviews is important for their self-esteem and their job prospects.
July brings added fun for members of the club! The club’s booth at the 2019 Mill Creek Festival will offer all kinds of information about club activities and benefits of membership.
Local women are invited to stop by and talk to the women who are “manning” the booth. They will be on hand to answer all manner of questions and discuss club activities in detail. This is a perfect time to learn about the Mill Creek Women’s Club and consider joining this active, social and philanthropic organization.
