The Woman’s Club began when Mrs. Elvira Evelyna Worth Moffit gathered a group of ladies together in the State Library Reading Room for the sole purpose of organizing a Woman’s Club. The Woman’s Club came into being with the hope and belief that it could by organization better serve the city and community in which it exists. Helen Primrose McPherson, Past President, 1926

President’s Project

Responding to the Crises of the
2020 Pandemic

The Woman’s Club of Raleigh has a long and outstanding history of service to our community. Because of the leadership of many courageous and visionary women, the Club has made a difference in our society through its many volunteer activities. I thank you for placing your faith in me to follow behind these forward thinking women and serve as our Club’s President.

 Making a difference for the betterment of our community is part of our mission. The coronavirus pandemic has adversely impacted where we live. We see increased hunger and homelessness; we see a lack of justice and equality; we see a need for a source of potable drinking water on the Capitol Square. To respond to these issues, this President has chosen for her special Community Impact Project “Responding to the Crises of the 2020 Pandemic.” No one should go hungry; thus, we will be supporting the Food Bank and sponsoring food drives. We will be assisting the homeless by making mats out of recycled plastic bags. All people were created equal; thus, we will be working to mend the divide that exists by hosting discussions and searching for solutions to the problem. The water fountains on the Capitol Square have been long been inoperable. There is no source of potable water on this historic site’s grounds for school children, visitors or residents who work/walk downtown; thus, we will work with the NC State Capitol to raise money to provide a source. This is an ambitious project, but we are ambitious and care about our community. Please join us as we go forward.
