The Strong Women of SWOOP complete monthly Community Service Workdays -- one-day heavy-lifting projects for people in our community who have nowhere else to turn. We also do the same for local non-profits that serve the community and are trying to make their limited resources go farther. Our strength is providing highly organized, skilled, and joyous volunteer labor. In the process, we offer women an opportunity to build community and learn new skills. We started in 1996, cleaning up after Hurricane Fran, and we haven't stopped since. Our new program, Ramp It Up!, will answer calls for wheelchair ramps from people who need them most, but can least afford them.
