The Junior Woman’s Club of Columbia was founded to bring together and equip young women to promote educational, social and civic progress in the city, state, nation and world. In the mid 1970’s, members decided to focus their philanthropic efforts on helping abused and neglected children by founding Palmetto Place Children’s Shelter. In addition to hosting an annual fundraiser, Baubles and Bubbles, club members take an active hands-on role at the shelter.
Four club members hold positions on the board and others serve as weekend house parents, helping with Christmas gifts and other needs for the children, and watching the house when staff members hold meetings and attend conferences. Although Palmetto Place is the biggest charity to club members’ hearts, they are also involved in a number of other projects.
In 2013, the Junior Woman’s Club raised money for a local girl with cancer, they collect and distribute care packages for military members, and they hold an annual Christmas party for the oncology department at Palmetto Health Children’s Hospital.
