The Woman's Club of Albany
United in Service to Our Community Since 1910
WCA members will volunteer to prepare lunch to be served to Habitat for Humanity Capital District workers on Saturday, May 7. We've moved the date so we can participate in Habitat for Humanity's National Women Build Week when thousands of women volunteers across the U.S. will rally to build affordable housing in their communities.
If you can help prepare lunches or deliver them to the Habitat for Humanity work site on Orange Street in Albany please contact the Club at email@example.com.
Welcome to the Woman's Club
The Woman's Club of Albany is one of the oldest not-for-profit community organizations in the Capital District.
We donate to local organizations serving the needs of women and children, volunteer for a wide range of projects and offer opportunities for new social, professional and community connections.
WCA members read to kindergartners and first graders, including children for whom English is a new language (ENL), at the Albany City School TOAST (Thomas O’Brien Academy of Science and Technology). The TOAST library was the recipient of funds raised by the WCA’s 2015 “Good Books” program. Librarian Jamie Holmes selected books on famous women in history for WCA members to read to the children as part of Women's History Month.
Join us Tuesday, May 3, 6:30 p.m. for our monthly 2sDay in the Parlor. Who knows? We could be on the porch - depending on Mother Nature. Close enough to May 5th to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. Come and enjoy friends, food and the finer things in life! As always, we appreciate a nip or a nosh to share.
