Volunteering is always more fun with friends!

The purpose of this club is to foster volunteering and physical support within our community. This organization does not contribute funds, nor raise money, for any organization or charity. It is a matter of contributing our time as a group of like-minded women who wish to represent IYC in a way that shows empathy for others by partnering in our town’s projects. Members of the IYC can bring to the club numerous projects throughout Charlotte County.
All women of the IYC are welcome to join this group. If you would like to be placed on our email list and receive notifications of upcoming projects, please contact either Janie Duke, steve-n-janie@hotmail.com or Mary Frances Adair, adairmwa@embarqmail.com.
