WASHINGTON, DC — The Network of enlightened Women, known as NeW, encourages conservative women to give back to their communities and campuses with community service through our ConSERVative programming. This program reminds students of the important role they play in making a difference in their communities.

As part of this program, NeW women have written letters to veterans, volunteered at Special Olympics events, served at soup kitchens, cleaned up local beaches, and led fundraisers to raise money for local and global non-profits.

Earlier this year, the NeW chapter at the University of Mississippi wrote Valentine’s Day cards and put together gift baskets for elderly in the retirement home in their community. This was a small way to show their support when many of the residents had not seen anyone outside of the retirement home since the start of the Covid pandemic.

Over the Labor Day weekend, women from NeW at Boston College made pans of baked ziti for a group in their community, On The Rise, Inc. The nonprofit supports women working to get out of homelessness. Their event provided a meal for all of the women that day.

The NeW chapter at American University hosted a bake sale where they raised more than $250 that they donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Each of the chapter women baked goods that the chapter then sold to their peers. This effort will have an impact on women in their community and across the nation.

These are just a few of the many ConSERVative events NeW chapters have held this year.

“Our ConSERVative programming puts into action what we believe as conservatives – that the role local groups and organizations play is important, and we shouldn’t look to the federal government first as the solution. It is inspiring to see these women help those around them and give back to their communities and schools. I hope their actions will motivate others to serve as well,” said Karin Lips, President of NeW.
