NJSFWC ECONNECTION – Shirley A. Holly, NJSFWC President June 15, 2022

By Marie Sullivan

We are excited to have Emmanuel Cancer Foundation as the NJSFWC Special State Project for the 2022-2024 administration.

Their main objective is helping families who have been affected by Childhood Cancer. One of the ways ECF helps families is by providing supplies needed while their children have Cancer Treatments.

There are many ways to help ECF. Since they supply over 550 filled Backpacks for Back to School, we’d like to ask clubs to help out this summer. Nice Backpacks can be purchased reasonably at stores like FiveBelow and most items can be purchased at the dollar store.

Backpacks filled with:
1 composition book
2-#2 pencils
pencil sharpener
2 erasers
1 pair safety scissors
2 glue sticks
1 box washable markers
2 pocket folders
1 plastic ruler
1 pencil case
1 backpack
1 lunchbox
1 box of tissues

This collection over the summer will be greatly appreciated!

Please contact Marie Sullivan, SSP Chairman for pickup arrangements.

Our ever popular Lobster Shanty Fundraiser will be held on August 10, 11:30 a.m.- 3:30 p.m.  Get your tickets early as this popular fundraiser sells out quickly.

Raffle Baskets are needed to help make this event successful! You may give Basket donations to your District Vice President and arrangements will be made to pick them up.

More information will be posted on the NJSFWC website.
