General Federation of Women’s Clubs Collects 10,300 Books for Book Tree

The Brentwood/Franklin Woman’s Service Club, formerly known as the Brentwood Woman’s Club, is sending thanks to all who contributed books locally and across the state for a book tree that will be constructed at the Governor’s mansion on Nov. 19.

GFWC of Tennessee, comprised of 40 women’s clubs across the state, began a project in July 2016 to build the world’s largest book tree. The project is now complete, thanks to the donation of 10,300 children’s books from all across the state.

The books will be distributed to domestic shelters, schools and others in need of books after the display period.

The GFWC brings together local women’s clubs with members dedicated to strengthening their communities and enhancing the lives of others through volunteer service. With 100,000 members in affiliated clubs in every state and more than a dozen countries, GFWC members are community leaders who work locally to create global change by supporting the arts, preserving natural resources, advancing education, promoting healthy lifestyles, encouraging civic involvement and working towards world peace and understanding.

The Brentwood Woman’s Club is part of the General Federation of Women’s Club and are dedicated to strengthening communities and enhancing the lives of others through volunteer service.

They are a 501(c)3 non-profit who have been in the Brentwood community for more than 40 years, celebrating its 43rd anniversary of service this year.
