The Matthews Woman’s Club Service League is located at 208 South Trade Street in downtown Matthews, North Carolina. The historic building was built in the 1940’s for the American Legion and the clubhouse was donated to The Matthews Woman’s Club in the early 1970’s. The Matthews Woman’s Club Service League began in 1988 and was formed as an offshoot from The Matthews Woman’s Club. From humble beginnings, it grew into an organization that gives back to the Matthews community with time, talent, and service. There are currently more than sixty members who live in Matthews and the surrounding area. The Town of Matthews has a population of over 28,000 residents and is in the suburban Charlotte, NC metro area.
The focus of the organization is on service to the Matthews, NC community. It supports and enhances the community through fundraisers and service projects. Funds raised through these projects are dispersed to local non-profit and community service organizations. Local non-profit organizations are supported with hands-on assistance, attendance at events, promotions of events and generally by lending a hand where it is needed.
