During the years the Lake Highlands Women's League has raised and distributed an impressive amount of money to some very worthy causes. The accumulated total of funds donated in college scholarships to Lake Highland seniors is over $1,687,000.00. The funds disbursed to other community organizations, school and capital projects is over $830,000.00, making our grand total of funds distributed over the last 46 years over $2,517,000.00! We are proud of our organization and the contribution we have made to the Lake Highlands community.
Who is Eligible to be a Member
Our membership is open to women who live within the Lake Highlands High School attendance boundaries as defined by the RISD. All prospective members must be sponsored by an active member of Lake Highlands Women's League.
Our membership is committed to volunteerism and meeting the needs of our community. Each active member volunteers at least four times per year at one or more of our many service projects provided each year, returning over 800 service hours to our neighborhood. These opportunities range from mentoring/tutoring students in area schools to providing lunch and entertainment to volunteering in a free clinic to shelving books at the neighborhood school library.
The entire membership also
is involved in our "
Home Tour, Bazaar and Luncheon, which is held the first Friday in December. This
is our only fundraiser, the "kickoff" to the Christmas season, and a wonderful
neighborhood event! Last year approximately $180,000.00 was disbursed from LHWL
for local student scholarships and community projects. For more information
