Soroptimists Seek Volunteers

NEW CLUB TO UNDERTAKE PROJECTS HELPING WOMEN AND GIRLS

Informational meeting to be held August 14, 2019

OAKMONT, CA – Organizers of a new Soroptimist club announced today that they will hold an informational meeting on August 14, 2019 at 273 Belgreen Place, Oakmont, open to women who are looking for opportunities to improve the lives of women and girls through programs leading to social and economic empowerment.  The club will be open to women in Oakmont, Kenwood, Glen Ellen and surrounding areas.

The club will be part of Soroptimist International of the Americas, a global volunteer organization for women with over 30,000 members in 21 countries and territories. Soroptimist volunteer their talents and energy to help women and girls live their dreams every day by giving them the resources to create positive change – for themselves, their families and their communities. 

The Soroptimist mission is exemplified by its major project, the Soroptimist Live Your Dream: Education and Training Awards for Women. Each year Soroptimist gives about $2 million to women who need to improve their job skills through education and training. Most are single moms and many are domestic violence survivors.

The club is being organized by Phyllis Rogers, a long-time Soroptimist member of Soroptimist International of Santa Rosa who said members of the new club will carry out Soroptimist’s Dream Programs, including the Live Your Dream Award in the local Sebastopol area. 

“Our club will offer opportunities to participate in programs that change lives, as well as to develop lifelong friendships and a network of global connections,” said Phyllis Rogers. “The name, Soroptimist, means ‘best for women,’ and that’s what our club will strive to achieve.”

If you want to attend the Informational Meeting on August 14 at 6:00 pm, please contact Phyllis Rogers at  707-477-6771. Please bring a dish to share.
