The Woman’s Club of Morristown will once again be selling refreshments at the Morris County St. Patrick’s Day Parade set for Sat., March 11, beginning at 9 a.m.
Club members will be set up in front of their clubhouse, the historic Dr. Lewis Condict House. Available will be coffee, hot cocoa, hot tea, bottled water, Gatorade, bagels, cookies, snacks, and soda bread, as well as Irish-themed trinkets. All proceeds go to Project Gratitude to support hospitalized veterans.
To further benefit the vets, the club will be accepting donations of full-sized toiletry items (shampoo, deodorant, soap, et cetera) to be included in gift bags given to veterans.
Project Gratitude honors and thanks members of the United States Armed Forces for their service. The Woman’s Club of Morristown delivers gift
bags throughout the year to the veterans on the Women’s Treatment Unit and male veterans on the PTSD unit at the Lyons, NJ, campus of the VA New Jersey Health Care System.
The gift bags include toiletries, puzzle books, and other necessities for the service members. In 2016, the Evening Social Services Department delivered 110 bags to the Lyons VA Hospital.
The Woman’s Club of Morristown, founded in 1910, is a group of more than 100 women dedicated to the service of their community. The club is a
nonprofit, non-political, non-sectarian organization whose purpose is to promote improvements within its community; to offer civic, cultural, and
educational activities; and to preserve the historic Dr. Lewis Condict House, its headquarters.
The club works closely with the NJ State Federation of Women’s Clubs and the General Federation of Women’s Clubs. More information is available at www.wcomt.org/ or www.facebook.com/#!/
