Proceeds from our fundraising efforts have also enabled RWA to award a scholarships of up to $2000 annually to local women who are beginning or continuing their education.

  We have an application process  that begins in the spring, and applicants must be local or be sponsored by an RWA participant.

Core Charities

 We contribute money from our fundraising efforts annually to our five core charities:

  • Oakmont Carnegie Library
  • Oakmont Volunteer Fire Department 
  • Verona Volunteer Fire Departments
  • Riverview Community Action Corporation
  • Oakmont Recreation Board

The women of  RWA have multiple opportunities to give back to our local community through various service projects and charitable contributions. Some individuals in our group also often choose to volunteer directly with other local service organizations including Meals on Wheels and the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life.

The Plastic Sorting Has Come to an End, but the Efforts of that Program will be Enjoyed for Decades to Come!
Benches have been placed at Tenth Street School, Riverview Jr/Sr High School, Verner Elementary playground, the War Memorial in Verona, The Oakmont Library, the Kerr Museum, the Cemetary, the Longwood pickle ball courts, RCAC and Dark Hollow Woods. As of today,

14 Benches have been placed!
Thank You to everyone that supported this program through RWA, The Oakmont Garden Club, The Oakmont-Verona Rotary and the Lions Club.
