The General Federation of Womens' Clubs - Wisconsin's "T'Shirts For Tuscaloosa", is a project spearheaded by the GFWC Woman's Club of West Allis.
New and "Gently Used" T- Shirts - Any size - Men, Women and Children will be collected May 16-20, 2011 at the following drop off sites:
West Allis City Hall - 7525 W. Greenfield Ave. - M-F 8:00 am - 5:00pm

WAWM Recreation Center - 2450 S. 68th St. - M-F 8:00am - 5:00pm
The WAWM Schools also have collecting going during the week of May 16-20.
The following week the T'shirts will be on their way to Alabama - and delivered to the areas most hit by the recent tornados.
This past weekend at the GFWC-WI Convention in Tomah - Woman's Clubs from around the state brought bags of T'Shirts which were packed into the President's van to be included in this project.
The GFWC-WI President, Ellen Weber has volunteered her husband, Dave and his truck to help with transporting - others have also volunteered to help - anyone feeling like they would like to donated in other ways (gas donations) or if you need additional information please call 414/541-8861, 414/543-1412 or 414/541-3252.
This may seem like small way to help - but, we are assured by the GFWC President of Alabama that it will be a much appreciated gester - she is so grateful that the people of Wisconsin are thinking of them.
