Rossmoor Woman’s Club donates 120 backpacks to children of military personnel

The Rossmoor Woman’s Club recently donated 120 school backpacks to the children of military personnel assigned to the Los Alamitos Joint Forces Base. The gifts are to be distributed to students in kindergarten through 12th grade by the Family Assistance Program at the base in conjunction with the Bob Hope USO of Orange County.

The Rossmoor Woman’s Club organized on March 27, 1958, and ever since then, our members — who come from all over Orange and Los Angeles counties — have been working to improve the quality of life for people in the community and surrounding areas. We provide financial support, volunteer hours and in-kind donations throughout Rossmoor, Los Alamitos, Seal Beach, Long Beach and Orange County.

As our mission statement says: “The Rossmoor Woman’s Club gives women a place to foster their talents and friendships while serving the community.”
