At its monthly meeting in February, Trumbull Community Women once again, wore red to show its support for the American Heart Association’s annual Go Red for Women Campaign. Started in 2004, the campaign seeks to educate women about the risks of heart disease, which statistics show is now the number one killer of women.

Club members were eager to spread the word about lifestyle changes that could improve their health and the health of their loved ones. To that end, the club gave out “red dress” pins at the library, held a heart health quiz at its meeting, and distributed Heart Association literature to its members.

Trumbull Community Women volunteers are involved with life in Trumbull all year long, starting with the Creative Children’s tent at the Trumbull Arts Festival in September, through gift baskets for needy families at the holidays and ongoing food drives for the Trumbull Food Pantry. In April, they host the quintessential Trumbull pride day, Tidy Up Trumbull, and in June, they join forces with other volunteer groups at the annual Relay for Life, hosted by the American Cancer Society.

Trumbull Community Women is proud of the many enduring friendships that have flourished in the group over the years, and they are always eager to welcome new members. Meetings are held the first Tuesday of every month, September through June, at 7 p.m., in the Community Room of the Trumbull Library.
