Special Projects

Domestic Violence

This is the 5th year our Club is supporting the YWCA "Project Protect" Program of Union County. Cell phones, toiletry items (both large and small) and these much needed supplies - toilet paper, tissues, toilet bowl cleaner, toilet bowl brushes, dish detergent, sponges, scouring powder, brooms, mops, ammonia, clorox, and laundry detergent - are being collected at the Berkeley Heights Public Library.

Club members will also be donating handmade afghans, quilted lap blankets, and Hug-A-Bears.

CASA NJ

We support collection of duffle bags for the children.

Cash donations will be used to purchase gift cards to Walmart, Target, grocery stores, and gas stations as requested for the children helped by CASA NJ.
