What We Do

Fridley Women of Today is a nonprofit, all volunteer organization that is dedicated to service, growth and fellowship.  We believe in giving back to the community by raising funds for worthy causes and by providing service and support through projects that can help strengthen and benefit many local organizations.  Throughout the year we are involved with several service projects such as conducting a food drive for our local food shelf or providing support for Bundles of Love Org. or Alexandra House.  Every summer we hold a school supply drive for our local schools and at least quarterly we get together to clean-up litter and trash from a stretch of East River Road as part of the Adopt A Highway program. We also take part in other projects like baking cookies for Habitat for Humanity or making fleece blankets for local hospitals and animal shelters.

Last year our chapter volunteered almost 1,000 service hours and contributed nearly $10,000 in cash donations and in-kind gifts back to our community……just imagine what we can do this year!

We also like to have lots of fun so we have several social events during the year like going out for dinners, hosting game nights or having a wine and cheese tasting party.   One year our chapter's theme was “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” and that is exactly what we are continuing to do!

Fridley Women of Today promotes service to others and is involved with community projects and local programs.  We are always on the lookout for new service opportunities to get involved with. Some of our projects have included:

We offer a variety of leadership and personal growth opportunities to help develop skills and talents related to becoming successful individuals. It also serves us well by interacting with other people and becoming better and more capable leaders.  Through individual growth programs, you can learn to better express yourself, to set and achieve goals and to develop management techniques.  We offer you the challenge to become involved, to work toward a better community and to become all you can be.   Women of Today strongly believes that growth occurs through self-confidence and learning to work effectively with others.
