PUBLIC ISSUES PROGRAM

Projects focus on fostering civic involvement, the importance of voting, and increasing safety for all ages in the home, community, and on the highway.

Reminds members to change batteries in smoke detectors, provides fire safety information, and coordinates self-defense and CPR classes. Collects snack items and mails packages to active military personnel overseas.
Public Issue members support our local Girl Scout troops and invite them to learn about flag etiquette and help them earn their Flag Service Badges by presenting colors at club meetings
Public Issues promotes Patriotism and Citizenship by passing out free flags to residents in the community on Flag Day, encouraging all of our members to fly a flag, and reciting the
Pledge of Allegiance at all club meetings.
We support local non-profit Top Dogg K9 who’s mission is to train service dogs to help our veterans with PTSD navigate daily life.
LWC was honored to provide a BBQ lunch to the military personnel and their families traveling through Hartsfield Jackson airport at the USO.
It took the entire club to pull of this feat, but it was worth the effort to support our troops.
