The New Jersey State Federation of Women’s Clubs (NJSFWC) has 20,000 volunteer members in New Jersey who share common goals and interests and have made an active and visible commitment to various projects and programs to improve our communities, our state and our world. Organized in 1894, NJSFWC is the largest and oldest non-denominational, non-partisan volunteer service in New Jersey.
Each year member clubs of the NJSFWC participate in the Special State Project. This year’s special state project is Operation Chill Out. OPERATION CHILLOUT is New Jersey’s oldest (and only) all-volunteer mobile outreach for homeless veterans, men and women, on mission since December 21, 2000. Its motto is “no borders-no boundaries.” Its mission is to respond to the crisis of homelessness with direct compassionate actions.
The General Federation of Women’s Clubs (GFWC) is an international women’s organization dedicated to community improvement by enhancing the lives of others through volunteer service. With nearly 90,000 members in affiliated clubs in every state, the District of Columbia, and more than a dozen countries, GFWC members work in their own communities to support the arts, preserve natural resources, advance education, promote healthy lifestyles, encourage civic involvement, and work toward world peace and understanding.
This year’s signature project is Domestic Violence Awareness and Prevention. You can support this effort by donating to the Success for Survivors Scholarship.
