Looking for a way to get involved? NCJW is spearheading a new project called the Women’s Veterans Initiative, funded by the Jewish Women’s Foundation, which will educate and bring awareness to issues faced by female veterans living in Essex County. As a committee member, help create a variety of programs and advocacy campaigns. This is an exciting new project — get involved on the ground floor!
In another effort, the Kids Emergency Closet project builds closets in select elementary and preschools in Newark, Irvington and Orange. Closets are stocked with clothing for students identified by teachers as needing extra assistance. Volunteer to be the liaison between NCJW and partner schools. This is a wonderful hands-on community service project.
Volunteers are also needed to help welcome new NCJW members. Make calls from home and meet as a committee on occasion. This is a great opportunity to share enthusiasm for NCJW/Essex with newest members.
One out of five children in New Jersey is hungry? Help make a difference by volunteering for the Empty Bowls No More Committee. The Committee helps support Patty’s Pantry to meet the immediate food needs of the NCJW/Essex Center for Women clients.
