This Club was one of the first to organize a sewing and knitting Auxiliary
of San Francisco Chapter of the American Red Cross. Mrs. B. F. STOLL
was chairman. Sewing was under supervision of Mrs. B. H. MARTIN
and Mrs. H. KAMPE - making 225 girls' dresses, 50 boys' suits, 500
hospital garments, 10 layettes, 416 knitted articles, and a donation of $65 was made to Red Cross and allied funds. Members of the Club took charge of booth at Stockton and Geary Streets for all the Liberty Loan and Red Cross drives, and through their activities many thousands of dollars were added to the war funds. Many glasses of jelly and jam were gathered for the soldiers.
The Improvement and Recreation Committee was instrumental in securing new benches and a drinking fountain for our park, and procured several sets of garden tools for children to use in school grounds.
Our Philanthropy section gave much happiness to the needy at Christmas time, providing warm clothing and filling stockings. They also furnished candy for children's Christmas entertainment at school.
The Club has thirty-two members and is now putting forth every effort to secure a permanent school building.
