NJ State Federation of Woman's Club 2023 Day of Service

On the National Day of Service - NJSFWC clubs make a difference!

The Franklin Woman's Club, College District participated in the Day of Service at NJSFWC Headquarters in New Brunswick. Food items for various meal kits were collected by the clubs in each District, brought to a central location and assembled into various meal kits. The meal kits and other food items were then donated to the Community Food Bank of NJ.

Thanksgiving Baskets for Local Families

Thank you to everyone who donated non-perishable food items, paper goods or made a monetary donation to fill four food baskets. Lisa Andreini, our Chairperson for Community Service program, with help from Nancy Gale, filled four baskets, beautifully gift wrapped them for delivery to a Franklin Township social worker for distribution to our needy families.  Lisa plans to prepare four more baskets for distribution before the December holidays in conjunction with this same program.  If you would like to help with the December baskets by making a monetary donation, or if you still have items you signed up to donate and you plan to get them to her please contact Lisa.  The next baskets will be finished up by December 18.

Smile Bags for Operation Smile!

61 Smile Bags ready to be shipped to Operation Smile
The Health and Wellness Community Service Program has been busy making Smile Bags to send to Operation Smile.  Operation Smile is an organization that provides free cleft lip and cleft palate surgery for children whose families might not otherwise be able to afford it. During recuperation, each child is given a Smile Bag containing small toys, stickers, personal care items, and a mirror with which to see their new smile.  See operationsmile.org for more information.  The members who worked on this project are Phyllis Beals, Valerie Buckner, Tracy Coney-Muse, Kathy Deily, Karen Hagerman, and Bonnie Martin. Thank you to everyone who assisted!
