Our Caring for America/Adopt-a-Soldier program collects non-perishable foods for the Fernley Food Bank along with donations of funds and care-items for our adopted soldiers. Our soldiers need single serving food items, personal care-items and, most especially, cards and letters from home.
Our Literacy Committee collects children's books for Bow Wow Books, a therapy dog program at Fernley Library that has grade school children read books to the pups.
All contributions for any of our important programs will be greatly appreciated. Financial contributions can be sent to the FRW at P.O. Box 412, Fernley, Nevada 89408.
This website is paid for by the Fernley Republican Women and not by any candidate or candidate's campaign committee.

The Fernley Republican Women (FRW) is committed to fostering literacy in the community and promoting Americanism in the schools. Each September, we participate in the National Federation of Republican Women’s Literacy Month by sponsoring literacy projects. On September 16, 2020, Literacy Chair Peggy Gray delivered dictionaries for distribution to each 3rd grade student at Cottonwood Elementary School. She and her committee members were saddened by the inability to actually accompany school staff to talk about literacy in all the classrooms and actually see the faces of the children light up as each receives a personal copy of “The Best Dictionary for Students.”
We also presented books to the Cottonwood Elementary School library. The books donated were One Flag, One America by Michelle Hirstius and Camillla Can Vote by Mary Morgan Ketchel with Senator Marsha Blackburn. Books were also donated to Bow Wow Books, an organization that teamed up with the Fernley library. Bow Wow Reading Dogs are nonjudgmental certified therapy dogs who listen to children reading aloud. The dogs' handlers have been educated on how to help readers learn to read.

On Constitution Day the FRW's Americanism Committee donated pocket constitutions to the 5th grade students at both Silver Stage Middle School and Fernley Intermediate School.
