Soroptimists International of Friday Harbor started off their fiscal year by providing $5,000 in additional funding to two vital community organizations.
The club gave 2,500 each to Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Services of San Juan County (DVSAS) and the Family Resource Center in Friday Harbor.
These funds are in addition to annual grants Soroptimists provide to these two organizations, whose services directly support the Soroptimist mission. The Family Resource Center is a drop-in, resource and referral center for community members that helps families use social services in San Juan County. DVSAS works to prevent domestic violence and sexual assault and to provide services and support to victims.
Soroptimist International is a service club with a mission to improve lives and opportunities for women and girls in local communities and around the world. The Friday Harbor Chapter, www.sifri.org, raises funds, provides volunteers for community programs, and provides grants and scholarships to individuals and organizations to advance that mission.
