  The Mobilized Women's Organisation of Berkeley was founded in 1917 by representatives from 151 women's organisations to help the First World War effort. They conducted many successful drives for food conservation, and the Red Cross, as well as developing a program to reclaim waste. The salvage, repair, and resale of unwanted items such as newspapers, clothing, and furniture allowed the organisation to remain self-sustaining. They also sponsored various fund raising events and activities for the community.
