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 the Ronald McDonald House and Renown Hospital's Children's Ward.
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.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Fernley Republican Women (FRW) is committed to fostering literacy in the community. Each September, they participate in the National Federation of Republican Women’s Literacy Month by sponsoring literacy projects. On September 17, 2019, Literacy Chair Peggy Gray and FRW President Lorrie Olson presented a dictionary to each 3rd grade student at Cottonwood Elementary School. Accompanied by Principal Cory Sandberg they talked about literacy in all six classrooms. The faces of the children lit up as each received a personal copy of “The Best Dictionary for Students.”
The FRW members also presented three books to the school librarian for the Cottonwood Elementary School library. The books were What's Right by Patty Presnell Kinkead, Cannon the Brown Bear by Kyle McGrath and One Flag, One America by Michelle Hirstius
A few days later, we donated new children’s’ books to Renown Hospital's Children's Ward. These books will help to educate the children and provide a distraction from their treatment.
Fernley Republican Women is a group of women (and men as associate members) who share similar conservative values and ideals, and who are dedicated to increasing the influence and effectiveness of women in the cause of good government through political education and active political participation.
