OneChild receives donation
Submitted By Bernie Dutra
OneChild is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing disadvantaged children with new clothing and school supplies, received a check for $5,500 from the Tri-Cities Women's Club on May 21st. This extraordinary gift was the result of a decision by the club to ask each member to raise their own funds rather than hold a traditional fundraising activity. OneChild was extremely grateful and overwhelmed by the generosity and support by this wonderful group of women who do so much for our community.
The Tri-Cities Women's Club is one of the oldest organizations in Fremont. It began in 1963 as the Newcomers Club, a women-only organization but has expanded membership to all men and women of the community. Annual dues for the organization, whose efforts are directed toward easing the burden of the less fortunate, are $20. Each year, money and goods are raised and donated to various charities in the area.
