Woman’s Club Annual Back-to-School Collection

Some of the school supplies collected in last year’s Annual Collection of New School Supplies

PARSIPPANY — The Woman’s Club of Parsippany–Troy Hills (WCPTH) is conducting 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.  Items needed are $10.00 or $20.00 Walmart, Target or Kohl’s gift cards, which their mothers can use to buy school clothes and shoes for the children. Additional suggestions include school and after-school snacks, such as granola bars, pretzels, goldfish crackers, and beverages such as small, non-breakable bottles of water or juice, or juice boxes. The collection ends August 10.

To donate, please contact Cathy H. at (973) 335-9769.
