Soroptimist is an international women’s organization whose mission is to improve the lives of women and girls, in local communities and throughout the world, through programs leading to social and economic empowerment. Almost 90,000 Soroptimists in about 124 countries and territories contribute time and financial support to community-based and international projects that benefit women and girls. The Greater Macomb club has members from all over Macomb County - from Romeo to St Clair Shores. We have contributed to programs such as Turning Point, Human Trafficking Awareness, Macomb Literacy Partners, and Salvation Army. We would LOVE to have you attend a business meeting or program event to help us assist women and girls in Macomb County, our State of Michigan, The United States of America, and all over the world.
