HISTORY


The Junior Women's Club of Fairfield has been serving the Fairfield community for almost 50 years.  Through our sponsorship of various social and personal enrichment programs for women and children as well as the presentation of fun family-oriented fundraisers - such as Touch-a-Truck and "A Visit to Santa's House", the Fairfield JWC is well established as a respected community group.

Through the years, the Fairfield JWC has donated more than $400,000 to dozens of local groups through its CARE Program, most recently to Alpha Community Services YMCA.  In addition, the Fairfield JWC awards scholarships to graduating high school seniors through its Scholarship Program.

Open to women in Fairfield and surrounding towns, the JWC is a non-profit organization that gives members the chance to make new friends while giving back to the greater community.



ACTIVTIES


Major Fundraisers
Annual "A Visit to Santa's House" - Historic Burr Homestead is transformed into Santa's own house each year during the holidays, allowing young guests the opportunity to meet Santa, share a cookie with Mrs. Claus, sing holiday carols and more!  Proceeds from this event go to our charitable partner which we select as a club each year.   

Touch-a-Truck - A hands-on activity for kids and parents (all ages) to experience their favorite trucks by climbing into the driver's seat, honking the horn and pretending to steer!  Proceeds from this fundraiser benefit the club's high school scholarship program.
Community Service Events
Town Spelling Bee - Classroom winners from Fairfield's 5th grades compete in an annual town Spelling Bee!


Grants & Scholarships
CARE Partnership - Each year, the JWC chooses a local non-profit organization as a partner to receive the proceeds from our largest fundraiser - "A Visit to Santa's House" - and to coordinate non-monetary activities throughout the year that directly benefit the charity's clients.

Scholarship Program - The JWC has awarded over $75,000 in scholarships since 1992.  To qualify, high school students must have a GPA of 3.4 or higher, demonstrate a financial need and a record of community service.
