Kingwood Women’s Club, a 501(c)(3) organization, was founded in 1985 in Kingwood, Texas, with the goal of providing volunteers to perform service through various community organizations. KWC, which now has over 130 active members, has exceeded its original goal and has been able to add generous donations to local organizations as part of its community service. Since its inception in 1985, Kingwood Women’s Club has donated a total of $919,910 to organizations in the Kingwood and Humble area.
KWC is preparing for a celebration to recognize the sponsors of our marketplace and to award the checks to the various organizations. The “Fruits of our Labor” reception will be held at The Overlook on March 19.
The Holiday Marketplace for 2015 is scheduled for Oct. 26-27 at the Humble Civic Center. To find out how to become a sponsor or vendor, please go to kingwoodwomensclub.com.
