Emmanuel Cancer Center Birthday Bags

We have donated non-perishable food items and birthday bags to Emmanuel Cancer Center this year. The last delivery before the summer was made yesterday. We are happy to support this worthwhile cause, and plan to continue our support for the next club year. Birthday Bags provide celebration ingredients for the children and their families fighting cancer. A cake mix, a can of frosting, candles, balloons, festive plates and napkins, and other small party items in a birthday bag can make a big difference!

2019 Emmanual Donation

Delivery of Baby Items

Due to the overwhelming generosity of our members and guests at our Baby Shower, we sorted and packaged girl’s and boy’s clothing  sized 3 months to 24 months for The Baby Basics Program at Children’s Aid and Family Services, and size 2 to 5 for the Strengthen Our Sisters Shelter. These photos show a sampling of the items donated–clothing of course, but also big boxes and bags of diapers, wipes, toys, board books, shoes, socks blankets, an infant swing and more. We had to pack a car for two days to make the deliveries! Pictured below are Maria DiMartino, Linda Miko, and Nona Maher with the representative from The Baby Basics Program at Children’s Aid and Family Services. A huge thank you to all who supported us! You helped to make a difference for many families in need.

18th Annual Baby Shower

On June 4th our club held our 18th annual Baby Shower to benefit moms in need, Donations this year were targeted for Strengthen Our Sisters Shelter and The Baby Basics Program at Children’s Aid and Family Services. Members were so generous with their donations, and attendees enjoyed dinner together at Savini’s Restaurant in Allendale. This Shower also marked the end of our Club year. Our next Club meeting will be on September 10th at 7pm at the Upper Saddle River Library. All members and prospective members are welcome to attend.  Come and learn about us and our charitable causes!
