Literacy & Education Programs
The root of the Woman’s Club is as a literary society. The “Founding Mothers” of the Woman’s Club of Red Bank purchased and maintained the club house as a place where they could teach people how to read.
Today the Woman’s Club of Red Bank invites individuals (men are welcome too) and businesses to get involved any way they can by volunteering time or goods, donations or sponsorship to support our education and literacy projects.
