Thank you for your interest in our club and for your thought towards helping improve the lives of women and girls! There are many ways to get involved including volunteering opportunities, online advocacy, joining our online community, and partnering with our women’s organization. Locally we are a small, but dedicated group of women. Internationally, our membership numbers over 58,000 women!
In SICB, one of our main focuses has been on helping educate single mothers who are returning to school to improve their lives and the lives of their children by providing grant money. Once yearly we distribute Live Your Dream Awards, and the money our awardees receive allows them as single moms to pursue their dreams. We believe by assisting young women in their educational and training goals will also help serve as positive modeling for their children to continue with their education as well.
A second focus of SICB is a wonderful community service program which is just over a year old. The program is our “Necessary and Nice” Bags: Tote Bags for Homeless Women. Several times a year we fill nondescript cloth tote bags and/or backpacks with personal hygiene supplies, simple safety items, and non-perishable food items. The filled Necessary and Nice Bags are then distributed to some of the 350 homeless women living on the streets of the Monterey Peninsula. We also donate sleeping bags and tarps and other simple items to the homeless women who do not have access to very basic survival items.
Find out more about our clubs and working with other women who believe in the power of joining together to accomplish great things in support of women and girls.
