Women’s Cooperative Council
AFR Women’s Cooperative Council members assist in the planning and implementation of the AFR Women’s Cooperative vision. This will include events such as the AFR State Convention activities, the Women’s Cooperative Initiative, Women’s State Conference and other various activities.
The Women’s Cooperative has partnered with the Oklahoma Blood Institute, America’s ninth largest non-profit blood donating center, to increase awareness of the need for donating blood. We are challenging our AFR members to have at least one blood drive participant from each county in Oklahoma.
In 2017 alone, through the AFR Women’s Cooperative affiliated blood drives, 7,425 lives were saved.
The Women’s Cooperative offers grants to AFR Agents, Counties and Local to host a blood drive in partnership with the Women’s Cooperative. The initiative was able to award 27 grants in 2018!
