Serving the Community Since 1947
Since 1947, Soroptimist International of Sequim has been serving our community and will be celebrating its 70th anniversary on May 2, 2017. As part of our celebration we would like to include anecdotes, reminiscences or short narratives from members of our community whose lives were improved or goals were aided as a result of our programs over the past 70 years. If you or your organization received contributions or benefited from the Medical Loan Closet, The Live Your Dream Award (formerly the Women’s Opportunity Award), Continuing Education Scholarship, Vocational Technical Award, Violet Richardson Award, High School Scholarship or Girl of the Month, we would like to hear your story of how Soroptimist International of Sequim impacted your life or organization. Please send your narrative to: PO Box 126, Sequim, WA 98382, visit us on Facebook, or e-mail us at: firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hearing from you.
Soroptimist International is a worldwide organization with over 34,000 members in 19 countries and territories. The organization, a recognized authority on matters that women value most, uses its international voice and official status with the United Nations to advocate on behalf of women’s issues.
The heart of Soroptimist’s mission is to “make a difference for women” through volunteer service to the community. Projects are carefully chosen to address challenges unique to today’s women.
Soroptimist International of Sequim (SIS) gives financial support to senior high school girls, women returning to school, women who demonstrate commitment through volunteer work and various agencies whose missions align with ours. A primary objective of SIS is an “outreach program” created to help middle and high school girls focus on their future and encourage them to take advantage of available opportunities. The SIS Medical Loan Closet makes a significant contribution to the community by providing new and used medical equipment to those in need, free of charge.
SIS raises funds to support our philanthropic programs through: a Garden Show that the community of Sequim anxiously awaits each spring; a Gift Show, complete with Mr. and Mrs. Claus prior to Christmas; and the sale of delicious See’s Candy.
