MISSISSIPPI FEDERATION OF COLLEGE REPUBLICANS CHALLENGES MISSISSIPPI REPUBLICAN WOMEN TO A STATEWIDE CHILDREN’S BOOK DRIVE
JACKSON, MS – College Republicans and Republican women across the state are gearing up for a competition to collect children’s books for needy schools across Mississippi.
Chapters and clubs of the two organizations will be collecting new and slightly used children’s books throughout the month of September, until the deadline of midnight October 26th. They are asking for books ranging from K-3rd grade reading levels. The books will then be distributed to D- and F-rated schools in each of the clubs’ county or area. The loser of the competition will have to contribute $100 to First Book, a non-profit organization that provides new books and educational resources to children from low-income families.
“The book drive is a great way to support education in Mississippi, specifically schools that need the most help. And I love that it coincides with the National Federation of Republican Women designating September as Literacy Month,” said Dana Stringer, President of the Mississippi Federation of Republican Women. “This is a great way for both of our organizations to work together to support education while having some friendly competition,” said Hunter Foster, Chairman of the Mississippi Federation of College Republicans.
Both organizations are expecting not only a victory in November, but also a victory in October.

LOUISVILLE, MS. On Saturday, April 30, 2016, the Mississippi Federation of Republican Women (MFRW) gathered at Lake Tiak-O’Khata for the Spring Board of Directors Meeting and adopted the following resolution:
Whereas, Since its founding, the Mississippi Federation of Republican Women and its members have always joined together in unity following a vigorous primary campaign season;
Whereas, 2016 is a pivotal year, and the winner of the presidential race will shape the direction of our nation for many years to come; and,
Whereas, Electing a Democrat to the White House ensures the continuation of President Obama’s policies, which have been ineffective at best and disastrous at worst;
RESOLVED, That the Mississippi Federation of Republican Women, meeting at its Spring Board of Directors Meeting in Louisville, Mississippi, April 30, 2016, pledges to actively support and work to elect the 2016 Republican nominee for president, as well as all Republican candidates for federal, state and local office.
“The Mississippi Federation of Republican Women believes in putting our full support behind the Republican nominee,” said MFRW President Dana Stringer. “In order to prevent four more years of a continuation of President Obama’s failed policies, we must rally behind the victor in Cleveland. It is for the best interest of our state and our nation that we have a Republican in the White House, whoever he may be.”
