What can I learn?

What can I do?

As an MHV member, you can learn about issues affecting your community, including family needs, local culture, the environment, and health and nutrition.

You can work with others in your MHV club to carry out projects to share what you have learned to help others. Here are some projects supported by MHV members in Mississippi:

  • International Program: Sew dresses for schoolgirls, shorts for boys, and tote bags for women in need.
  • Teddy Bears for Comfort: Donate teddy bears to the Mississippi Highway Patrol (and local police departments) for children who need comfort.

Membership Fee

There is an annual state membership fee of $10 for each MHV club member. In addition, members of local clubs may pay a county operating fee.
