The Woman’s Club of Parsippany-Troy Hills is a dynamic group of women of all ages and walks of life committed to volunteerism and service to the community. Our Club is involved in charitable, philanthropic, educational and recreational activities and has made many contributions to Parsippany and to our state. The Club works in harmony with the General Federation of Women’s Clubs (GFWC) and the New Jersey State Federation of Women’s Clubs (NJSFWC).
Some of the Club’s annual service projects include food drives, support of domestic violence shelters, book donations for Parsippany-Troy Hills Library, school supply drive for Jersey Battered Women’s Services, and working at the American Cancer Society Relay for Life. We also work with other NJSFWC Clubs on the Special State Project, National Alliance on Mental Illness.
The Club’s major fundraiser is the Annual Scholarship Golf Classic, which raises money for scholarships for Parsippany-Troy Hills High Schools. The Club also gives Middle School Citizenship Awards and 5th Grade Reading Awards. And every year the Club sends two delegates to Girl’s Career Institute at Douglass College.
