This helps to identify breast cancer early on. Cancer Support Community In WLV –each year we fully fund the Children Circle Program that supports children who their family member is diagnosed with cancer. Projects Serving the Community We are always striving toward serving our community in new ways. Santa Comes to Westlake, Agoura and Beyond –mission it was to make sure that no families in our community would experience hunger during the holiday season. The Westlake Junior Women’s Club took over all planning and execution activities in 2009 to continue this wonderful tradition. Each year over 100 needy, local families receive bags of groceries or grocery and gas gift cards to ensure a happy holiday season abundant with food.
The food is delivered to the families on the first Saturday in December by community volunteers. Meals on Wheels – In addition to financial assistance, twice a month, the Westlake Juniors provide volunteers who deliver meals to homebound seniors. Feed the Hungry – In addition to financial assistance, once a month from October to March, members prepare and serve homemade meals to local men, women, and children who are in need.
In addition to all the hard work we put into serving the community, we also like to have fun! We have a social event almost every month, we started a Wine Club, we have made friends for a lifetime. We invite you to come to a meeting and discover what Juniors is all about.
