New Special State Project

2022-2024: Emmanuel Cancer Foundation

Emmanuel Cancer Foundation was founded in 1983 and provides comfort and support for families facing pediatric cancer. They provide in-home counseling, food, material assistance as well as emergency funds to help with urgent expenses. This organization was chosen by NJSFWC President Shirley Holly to be our Special State Project 2022-2024.

The NJSFWC is holding a Summer Luncheon to benefit Emmanuel Cancer on Wednesday, August 10, 2022 from 11:30 to 3:30 at the Lobster Shanty, 83 Channel Drive Point, Pt. Pleasant Beach, NJ. Luncheon includes salad, choice of entrée, dessert and coffee/tea. Tickets are $45.00 per person. There will be a silent auction and a 50/50. If you are interested in attending please contact Cheryl by July 15th. —Cheryl

Magic Pillowcases

We will be donating pillowcases to Emmanuel Cancer Foundation for the children and their families. The Pillowcase sewing workshop was held at St. Paul’s with 8 members attending. Once instructions were given, fabric was cut, pressed and sewn. Several pillowcases went home with members to be completed. We had some laughs and enjoyed seeing the fabrics that were purchased to complete the cases for ECF.

If you would like to get involved, give Debbie a call @856-845-8896 and we will arrange another workshop if needed. —Debbie

2020-2022: Operation Chillout

This Special State Project has ended. Our club raised $2,145.00 and donated items to this organization in two years.

The total monetary amount donated by all of the Clubs in New Jersey was $63,795.97 which was revealed at Convention. A quilt raffle profit and a Bunco fundraiser were not included in this amount so it will be higher once they are included.

The donations raised will go for two critical projects for Operation Chillout. One is aimed at ensuring viability of their first veterans’ tiny home. The other will go to the design and installation of a custom roof-top solar power unit with battery backup and an automatic propane-fueled emergency power generator.

Thank you for your support of our Special State Project 2020-2022.
