Woman's Club of Leonia Inc.
For almost 100 years the Woman's Club of Leonia has been active in community service, fundraising and scholarships.
The club began in 1913 as a unit of the National Housewives League before joining the New Jersey State Federation of Women's Clubs in 1921. It has played an active role in the borough throughout its history. The club's longevity can be traced to the bonds between the members and their service to the community.
- The club works with the American Legion, the schools, and in 2011, raised $800 to restore "The Fox Den," an oil painting by Leonia artist Charles Chapman.
- The club annually gives out about $4,000 in scholarships to Leonia High School students.
- The club also helps the Center for Hope and Safety, a center for victims of domestic violence, by collecting necessary items for its patrons that can't be purchased with food stamps.
- An ongoing project is supporting Boatsie's Boxes, sending Christmas stockings filled with candy, gifts and supplies to soldiers overseas.
