clubhouseThe 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. 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.

members on lawnSince 1988, the Matthews Woman's Club Service League has been dedicated to community improvement through volunteer service. Our purpose is "to know and understand others better while raising funds to support non-profit organizations."

Our focus is on service to the Matthews community and is two-fold. We strive to support and enhance our community through fundraisers and service projects. Funds raised through these projects are distributed to local non-profit organizations. We support our local non-profits with hands-on assistance, attendance at events, promotion of events, and generally lend a hand where needed. It is with great pride that we are able to donate our funds and our time to the Matthews community.

In April 2014, MWCSL had the pleasure of donating funds raised throughout the year to help Matthews non-profits. Pictured above are several of our 2013-2014 grant recipients with our Disbursement Committee members and President Joanne McMurtrie.

The Matthews Woman's Club Service League is a member of Matthews Human Services Council and Matthews Chamber of Commerce.
