The Woodcroft Women's Club contributes to local charities with volunteer time, monetarily, and with donations in the form of food and household items. Year round, members volunteer in numerous ways at DCRC, Families Moving Forward (formerly Genesis Home), the Backpacks program at the Durham Food Bank, and cleaning the WWC's adopted portion of the American Tobacco Trail.

Each club year, the membership nominates and votes on which charities and organizations will receive our fundraising proceeds. The WWC encourages donations to local Durham/Triangle organizations. We estimate that over the last 30+ years, the club has raised well over $150,000 for our local community.

The charities selected for the 2020-2021 year are: 

  • Life Skills Foundation
  • Lincoln Community Health Center Foundation
