AAUW Lakewood promotes and supports public education. We participate in local events, such as Race for the Cure and the Second Wind Walk/Run. We also have collaborated with and supported local artists.

We achieve positive outcomes by combining our efforts with other community groups:

    • West Jeffco Chamber of Commerce
      We co-sponsor the annual Good News Breakfast.
    • Jeffco Action Center
      We support The Action Center, by collecting and donating food and supplies especially needed by women and children.
    • Serving Kids Program in Jeffco 
      Serving Kids provides new or nearly new clothing to preschool through high school Jeffco school children who are in need. It is an all-volunteer program of the Jeffco Schools Foundation and is in partnership with Jeffco Schools employee associations. Donations of new and gently used shoes, boots, coats, hats, and gloves are needed. They are most appreciative of packages of new underwear and socks.

Public Art
AAUW Lakewood believes strongly that a community is enhanced by support for the Arts. Our branch commissioned a life-sized bronze statue, “Imagine That.” Our member Kathy Anderson sculpted a young female soccer player imagining whom she might become as she reads books on science and math.

We also solicited funds and personally helped pay for “Three Generations,” another bronze statue, which has been placed outside the Lakewood Heritage Center.
