Soroptimist is an international volunteer service organization for women who work to improve the lives of women and girls, in local communities and throughout the world.
Soroptimists are women of all ages, cultures, and ethnic groups. They are working moms and single women, small business owners and corporate executives, secretaries, attorneys, teachers, nurses and physicians. Soroptimists are leaders across all disciplines that also serve as role models for younger women at the beginning of their careers. The common thread that connects all Soroptimists is their desire to make a difference for others through volunteer service.
The Harrisburg Club was organized in 1938 by a small group of professional women who saw the need to aid other women through community service. As of July 2019 there were 20 members in the Soroptimist International of Harrisburg club who take as their mission to use our time, talent and resources to advance the status of women and children. To accomplish this mission, we establish and support specific projects to address the needs locally, regionally and internationally. We are small but mighty in our efforts to work to improve lives in the Harrisburg area.
