(Richmond, VA) -- The Delver Woman’s Club has broken Club records in its giving to Virginia Union University, presenting a check for $25,000 at the Club’s 68th Annual Luncheon Meeting held on May 18, 2013. “Education is one of our goals and Virginia Union is a very important educational driving force for both the Delver Woman’s Club and the City of Richmond,” said Delver Woman’s Club President Gloria Redmond. This is the Club’s largest donation to Virginia Union, according to Redmond, who received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology from Virginia Union in 1967.
Organized in 1945, the Club now has 90 members who participate in civic, cultural, educational, economic, and social activities. The Club’s projects, programs, and activities incorporate all facets of the Richmond community, including Community Learning Week, the United Negro College Fund, Eleventh House, Boys Choir of Richmond, Girls’ Club of Richmond, Meals on Wheels, Black History Museum, Virginia Museum, and Urban League of Greater Richmond.
