3rd Trimester Challenge

Let’s wear orange at our chapter meetings in February and take a picture of your chapter and send to “USWT Programming” Facebook group under the challenge post. Please put your chapters name and state you are from and your chapter will be put into a drawing for a wine & chocolate basket.

2nd Trimester Challenge

My challenge for second trimester is to have your state or chapter send $56.00 or more to your local women’s shelter in October in honor or President Cindy’s 56th birthday. All who send me your transmittal before December 1 will be put In for a drawing.

State & Chapter Challenge during emphasis month (August, October, February):

Invite a guest speaker from your local shelter to speak at your meeting, take a tour of your local Domestic Violence shelter, collect supplies to donate, or plan your own project to help your local shelter. Take a photo of the Women of Today volunteers and send it in with your DVA Transmittal form, which may be found on the USWT website.

Everyone meeting this challenge any trimester will receive an incentive at Midyear or Year End Convention. In October, the USWT Midyear Convention will be held in Norman, OK. I hope you will plan to attend. Don’t miss the wonderful opportunity.

Please send in a DVA transmittal form when you complete your projects. We track volunteer hours and dollars. Let me know how your chapter and state supports Domestic Violence Awareness. Remember, there is a wealth of information on the USWT website or the USWT Facebook page. Check it often!
