Shelby Women's League

Shelby Women's League Shelby Women's League, a networking group for women who live or work in Shelby County, Alabama. We are dedicated to making Shelby County a great place for women to live and work. Our quarterly service projects are directed specifically to our community.
(2)

Shelby Women’s League was started in 2011 when a group of like-minded women wanted to give back to the women and children of Shelby County. There are many needs right here in our neighborhoods, yet finding those needs and someone to coordinate the action required is a challenge for every community. Our motto is “Service Minded-Connection Driven.” Our group consists of executives, business owners, attorneys, and entrepreneurs. Membership is open to anyone who works or lives in Shelby County and wants to contribute to making a difference right here in Shelby County. There are no dues, yet we do encourage a $5 donation at each meeting, where the “winner” donates the money to the charity of their choice. We have given back thousands of dollars to local individuals and organizations, a much appreciated “surprise” when received. Our desire is to be a source of assistance when other agencies have been notified yet things are still left to do. A house burns down and clothes are needed, a family needs a few meals to get through a rough time, a ramp needs to be built for wheelchair access, etc. SWL may be the answer to situations where something is needed yet no one knows where to turn. We are not a major source for fund raising, nor do we have a non-profit status. We are a group of women who are dedicated to using our connections, experience, and work ethic to get things done. We have a social media presence and like the old saying, “If you want something done, tell a women.”

Shelby Women’s League is sponsoring a room at Safe House of Shelby County. The room has been painted and it is now ready for us to furnish! It’s a really pretty blue color – pictures don’t really do it justice. The color name is Behr “Life at Sea” if you want to look online and get a more accurate portrayal.

We will soon be gathering a list of items needed. We know that the beds are twin XL and now is a good time to catch sheets that size on sale! Be thinking about how you can help - money, time or donations. Let us know if you want to participate.
