Joy to The World--Soroptimist Style

Fort Collins Soroptimist members look forward to our annual Holiday Program Meeting. We invite friends and family to share the Joy of Soroptimist service. What a great opportunity for awareness, advocacy, and action on behalf of women!

Soroptimist Joy is in the giving and the sharing.
  • This year we were priviledged to hear updates from several of SIFC's past Women's Opportunity Award Recipients. 
  • We donated to the SI President's Appeal.
  • And, we collected optional donations for two great local causes. 
    1. The Poudre School District Teen Parent Program benefitted from donated diapers and children's books. 
    2. A single mom and her two teens (who recently earned their own apartment) benefitted from donations of good quality used household goods and a gift card for necessities.
Browse some of our snapshots from the evening.

Soroptimist Members Make a Difference October 25

Members of the Fort Collins Soroptimist Club, along with family and friends, donated 54 hours of service time, personal energy, and resources to three local service projects during United Way's 2014 Make a Difference Day.

Soroptimist International's program objectives include environmental sustainability and elimination of violence against women and girls. This year's service opportunities allowed volunteers to work side by side with others in the community to make the world a better place. 

Some members helped improve the environment around Elderhaus--Fort Collins Adult Day Care Service. Some members helped improve the enviornment around the Rocky Mountain Raptor Program facility. And some members crafted Dignity Dresses, mittens and scarves for girls cared for by Children of Peace, International, in Vietnam.







Volunteers shown above include:  Ann Rutledge, Donna Weyer, Gloria Gleave, 
Gene Weyer, Bernie Fuller, Judy Weaver, JD Anderson, Peggy Herrick, 
Cheryl Rojas, and Libby Taylor.
