CHILD WELFARE

Any activity or project that benefits ONLY children is considered Child Welfare. Child Welfare is close to the heart of every Ladies Auxiliary member. Projects to provide for the welfare and well-being of children are unlimited. Learn the needs in the community and sponsor projects which will provide comfort, assistance, and love that is often needed to make life worthwhile.

Project Examples: Sponsor Scout Troops, Baseball & Football Teams, Assist underprivileged children with clothing, dental care, medical expenses & school supplies.

Department Project is Penrickton Center for Blind & Multi-disabled children.
