PARSIPPANY — The Woman’s Club of Parsippany-Troy Hills (WCPTH) just held its annual Operation Candy/Cookie Meeting and wrapped over 212 tins of holiday cookies, along with 68 packets of holiday cards, for area nursing and care homes. The goodies already have been delivered to residents of The Country Home, Morris Plains; The Firemen’s Home, Boonton; and The Eric Johnson House, Morristown.
Operation Cookie/Candy has been a project of New Jersey Women’s Clubs for over 50 years. Another recent holiday project of the club was Boatsie’s Boxes. Club members, friends and co-workers filled 142 Christmas stockings with toiletries, games, telephone cards and other items for members of the military serving overseas. These stockings were taken to the New Jersey State Federation of Women’s Clubs (NJSFWC) headquarters to be shipped with over 1,700 stockings filled by the other women’s clubs of NJSFWC. And later in December WCPTH club members will be donating toys and other gifts to be distributed to children in the Dover area through the Adopt-A-Family Head Start Community Program.
The Woman’s Club of Parsippany-Troy Hills is a member of the New Jersey State Federation of Women’s Clubs of GFWC, which is the largest volunteer women’s service organization in the state, providing opportunities for education, leadership training, and community service. The next General Meeting is on Monday, January 28.
