We are sisters, mothers, daughters, wives, and friends all working together for one common goal: to enrich the lives of others through volunteer service.
Founded in 1961, the Long Valley Junior Women’s Club has been enhancing the lives of those living in Long Valley, NJ and other surrounding areas through it’s fundraising and hands-on service activities.
2015 will mark the Club’s 54th anniversary as a member of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs an international women’s organization whose mission is to support and offer guidance to club members in their quest to act locally to create global change through volunteer service. We are affiliated with the New Jersey State Federation of Women’s Clubs of GFWC which is a statewide organization providing leadership tools, education, training and networking opportunities for New Jersey’s junior women’s club members who are committed to individual growth and community involvement by enriching the quality of life throughout New Jersey and the world while forming lasting friendships with other women.
We strive to accomplish these goals through our Arts, Health, Home Life, Education and C.A.R.E. departments, to name a few.
The Juniorettes Club is a non-profit organization that is sponsored by the Long Valley Junior Women’s Club. Juniorettes is open for membership to all young ladies in Grades 7-12 in Long Valley and surrounding areas. This Club independently leads their own club and shapes their own local agenda to support the needs of their community through service projects and fundraising.What We Do
To serve a community diverse in age, interests and experiences, we strive to provide programs that will unify and enhance the lives of all of those living in our communities as well as to provide fun activities for our members and their families. We do this by offering a variety of programs such as, but not limited to, our Children’s Arts and Recreation Enrichment Program (C.A.R.E.), senior citizen lunches, foster care donation collections, coat drives, food pantry donations, scholarships, photo contests, read-a-thons, spelling bee, blood drives, and so much more.
A great many of our fundraising and special projects allow us to allocate both monetary and special project donations to a large and diverse group of organizations benefiting our community and world as a whole. These include Educational donations to our schools, Public Health and Safety donations to organizations such as our local fire, police and first aid squads, battered women’s shelters, and cancer research organizations; and other Community Services organizations such as our recreational athletic programs, public library, local food pantries, and community senior center. A few of our special projects have allowed us to donate new pianos to all local elementary schools, defibulators to schools, and CPR training equipment to our police department.
