Our History
The Soroptimist International Club of Downey was the idea of Dr. Elizabeth S. Wright, a Soroptimist from the Soroptimist International Club of Huntington Park the early fall of 1951. At the first meeting the “Founding Five” outlined the principles of the organization. The charter party was held January 12, 1952 at the Woman’s Club in Downey. There were 25 charter members according to records that year. Today we have over 30 members and are growing. We support many charities; local and international including but not limited to:
