PARSIPPANY — Valentine’s Day became a happier occasion at the Jersey Battered Women’s Service (JBWS) when the Woman’s Club of Parsippany-Troy Hills donated Valentine candy hearts and lipsticks for the women in residence.
Having been betrayed by a spouse or significant other, either emotionally or physically, Valentine’s Day can be fraught with regret, sadness and anxiety for those suffering from domestic violence. Club members wanted to offer their love and support through this small personal gesture of candy hearts and lipsticks.
The new lipsticks, provided by Find Your Fabulosity, serve as a reminder for these women that they are beautiful and worthy inside and out. Each child resident also received a personal valentine card along with a smile bag filled with novelties and candy. The club also donated boxes of Valentine Cards for the children to distribute to friends and family
The Woman’s Club of Parsippany-Troy Hills is a member of NJSFWC, which is the largest volunteer women’s service organization in the state, providing opportunities for education, leadership training, and community service. General Meetings are held the fourth Monday of each month from September to April at 7:00 p.m. at the Lake Parsippany Rescue and Recovery, 100 Centerton Drive.
