Women's Club Brings Christmas Joy

Women's Club Brings Christmas JoyAntigua St. John's - Members of the International Women’s Club of Antigua and Barbuda (IWC) donned their antlers, Santa hats, and special Christmas outfits on Thursday, and brought cheer and joy to some of Antigua & Barbuda’s neediest citizens. 

The annual programme, made possible by donations from the Mill Reef Fund, Robert Eremian, Horizons Ltd, Food Brokerage, Epicurean Fine Foods, Mitchell A Michael, Inter-Island Sales and Supply, Christo’s Supermarket, Island Provision Ltd, Anjo Wholesale, and Food Brokerage Services, is also supported by clinic nurses who help identify the recipients and accompany the IWC volunteers on their deliveries. 

IWC also donates food hampers to Hero House, the St John’s Hospice, the Fiennes Institute, and other organisations in need. 

The charitable organisation was founded in 1986 as the American Women’s Club, to enable American women and wives of Americans to become acquainted with each other, and to create a forum in which the membership could enjoy the history, culture, and landscape of the island.

The International Women’s Club (IWC), as it is now known, has about 75 dues-paying members, a president, a board, a monthly newsletter, a book club, lunch bunch, and a two-volume cookbook, From Market to Table. Funds from its annual golf tournament support a scholarship programme for women pursuing tertiary education.
