WASHINGTON, DC — This month, the Network of enlightened Women (NeW) focuses on giving back to communities and campuses, declaring November as ConSERVative Month. NeW college chapters are serving their communities in many different ways, organizing service projects to show the difference one person can make. Community service is a great way for conservatives to actively help others, demonstrating the impact that people have when they act in their own community rather than relying on the federal government.

In celebration of ConSERVative Month, NeW women have written letters to the elderly, volunteered at Special Olympics events, given time at local soup kitchens, led food drives and fundraisers, and cleaned up local beaches and parks.

The NeW chapter at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte saw a great need in their community to serve the homeless as a cold streak swept through their area. They collected donations of gloves and hats from their chapter members and then spent an evening packaging the winter accessories and writing hand-written letters to put in each bag for the recipients. The women went out and gifted the bags to men, women, and children they came across that did not have a warm place to sleep that night. Not only were the recipients blessed by these gifts, but the women were encouraged by the smiles and gratitude they received in return.

The women in NeW at Boston College decorated and sent letters to veterans thanking them for their dedicated service to our country and wishing them a Happy Thanksgiving.

At the University of South Florida, NeW women partnered with Operation Christmas Child, run by Samaritan’s Purse, and hosted a fundraising drive on campus that helped them purchase toys, toiletries, and school supplies for young girls and boys in countries around the world that don’t have access to some of these essentials. The gift boxes will be sent and given to the children at Christmas.

“As conservatives, we value the role local groups and organizations play, rather than relying on the government as the solution. This is our way to put our policy into action, help our neighbors, and make a difference on college campuses and beyond. I am always inspired to see these women give back to their communities and schools, and I hope that others will be too,” shared Karin Lips, President of NeW.

The Network of Enlightened Women educates, equips, and empowers women to be principled leaders for a free society.
