Other Current Programs

The club presently and for many years has given financial and other support for women sheltered by the Salvation Army at Hope Harbor in Lodi.

Soroptimist International of Lodi gives an annual Achievement Award, which is a $1,000 scholarship for a woman who has been in the foster care system and is no longer eligible for support.

The Soroptimist Achievement Award is presented to women who have survived a challenging youth and graduated from the foster care program. Recipients are recommended by the Mary Graham Children's Foundation. Two $1,000 awards were given this year to sisters Breanna Palmer and Darrian Palmer Gregg. Both sisters are committed to academic excellence and have achieved outstanding grades. They each plan to pursue careers in the health sciences. Breanna’s award was given in memory of Maxine Crow, who passed away in January. Maxine joined Soroptimist in 1984 and served in multiple leadership positions. She was a kind, gentle, hardworking woman who loved all and was much loved; SI Lodi greatly misses her.

Mikey Hothi, District Director from the office of Assemblymember Jim Cooper, presented recognition certificates to the award recipients. Certificates were also provided on behalf of US Representative Jerry McNerney and California State Senator Cathleen Galgiani.
