The Long Valley Junior Women’s Club is proud to announce that it is allocating over $64,000 back to our community this year! We are absolutely thrilled with this success and ability to give back so much this year, despite the unprecedented challenges we faced. Our 2020 Club Year brought many difficult and unanticipated obstacles for LVJWC including the shutdown of our beloved Racks Valley Boutique for several months during the spring of 2020, our C.A.R.E. Program not allowed to operate and serve Long Valley area families providing after-school enrichment programs and our inability to hold our usual amazing fundraisers and events. These were all new and unique challenges, however we persevered with regular Zoom meetings, organized a handful of online fundraisers and events and most importantly came together as a Club to continue to serve our community and give back to those in need.
We could never have realized this incredible allocations goal without the hard work of our amazing volunteers who continued to help out at Racks even amidst the pandemic, our countless loyal Racks customers, the generous clothing donations we continued to receive and all those who supported LVJWC in so many ways! Together, this allowed us to continue our generous allocations donations to local programs including our schools, our police, fire and emergency services, our food pantry, battered women’s shelters, our community senior center, our college scholarship program, local families in need and so much more.
LVJWC President Lorraine Ronge recently stated “As president of the Long Valley Junior Women’s Club I have been overwhelmed by the tenacity and commitment of our members, especially during 2020! In spite of many obstacles which made fundraising a challenge, our ladies found large and small ways to continue to raise money for our citizens and community! My heartfelt love and thanks to everyone that helped us fulfil our mission.”
