Founded in 1962, with roots going back to the early 1900s, Lakewood Women's Club (formerly known as Junior Women's Club of Lakewood) has provided, and continues to provide, a philanthropic organization for women who are interested in serving their community and stimulating their minds while enjoying a program geared towards fun and friendship. The Club supports Lakewood through three distinct programs: an annual scholarship awarded to a female high school senior pursuing a higher education; funding for Project H2O (Help to Others), a program dedicated to strengthening and enriching Lakewood by engaging its youth as community builders; and support of a Lakewood based non-profit organization selected by membership through an application process.
