PARSIPPANY-TROY HILLS — The Woman’s Club of Parsippany–Troy Hills (WCPTH) recently conducted its Annual Back-to-School Collection to benefit the children at the residences of Jersey Battered Women’s Service (JBWS) of Morris County.  JBWS provides a safe house and transitional living accommodations for victims of domestic abuse and their children.  This year, WCPTH club members and friends donated $750.00 in gift cards for Wal-Mart, Target and Kohl’s  so that the children’s mothers can buy them school clothes.  Club members and friends also donated almost  $170.00 worth of snacks and beverages for school lunches and after-school snacking. For additional information on JBWS please contact info@jbws.org

The Woman’s Club of Parsippany-Troy Hills is a member of the New Jersey State Federation of Women’s Clubs, which is the largest volunteer women’s service organization in the state, providing opportunities for education, leadership training, and community service.  WCPTH has demonstrated its commitment to the community through an impressively wide range of community service endeavors.  The Club has served the township and the state with initiatives to support not only education, but also home life, conservation and more.  WCPTH is very proud to have been instrumental in the founding of the Parsippany Library and the Parsippany Child Day Care Center.  Today the Woman’s Club is involved with the Parsippany Food Pantry, American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life, Jersey Battered Women’s Service and Child Abuse Prevention – NJ.  And the club also supports Boatsie’s Boxes for the military serving overseas, UNICEF, Heifer International and other worthy and charitable causes
