WMJWC delivers Grace & Serenity
The WMJWC has partnered with Steam Soapery and Chester Candle. Our original scent is a delicate blend of lavender layered over fresh-cut greenery. Our products are made from all-natural ingredients, free of synthetics and toxins. The scent was curated carefully by Steam Soapery owner, Kaitlin Hester, to deliver a fresh, clean scent that could be enjoyed by all. It has been named to capture the essence of who we are at the WMJWC and what we wish to bring to our community. We have named our custom soap and candle Grace & Serenity, which is now available for purchase at Steam Soapery and online.
Click HERE for Grace & Serenity The first 30 bars of Grace & Serenity have been donated by the WMJWC to residents of the JBWS safe-house escaping domestic abuse. The more YOU enjoy Grace & Serenity, the more we can do! 20% of all sales will come back to the WMJWC to support our charitable work.

May Members Event Mothers Celebrating Mothers
This year for Mother’s Day, the members of the West Morris Junior Women’s Club will be filling and donating 30 Mother’s Day gift baskets and 40 Mother’s Day card kits to Jersey Battered Women Services (JBWS). Our member-donated baskets and card kits will be gifted to the 30 single mothers and their 40 children who currently reside in JBWS’s safe-house and transitional-living facilities.

Supporting the Next Generation of Women in OUR Community
Each year WMCWC looks forward to carefully selecting and awarding a West Morris Mendham High School senior with a scholarship for her continued education and charity of her choice.
All applicants must submit an essay and the winner is selected by our WMJWC Scholarship Committee. Applicant anonymity is assured by assigning numbers to essays. This avoids any bias by the judges and ensures all finalists have an equal opportunity to win. The winner must attend West Morris Mendham High School and successfully balance her exceptional academic achievements with community service. We look forward to reading all of the essays we receive this year! Click HERE to make a donation and support our educational initiatives today!
WMJWC Adapted and Thrived During the Pandemic
Spring has sprung as we wrap up a full year living through the pandemic. We have, like many others, had to alter or cancel our events, meet over video, and think outside the box to continue our mission. While the pandemic has certainly brought forth many challenges, the Juniors rose to the occasion, banded together and have been able to provide significantly more support to those in need than we have ever before. In the midst of it all, we have grown closer and stronger as a group, welcomed new members, and witnessed the generosity of our community. As the weather gets warmer, we look forward to safely meeting in person. We have initiated some brand new events with the help of enthusiastic members. Additionally, we have continued to push forward with as many of our events as we can. Unfortunately, we still cannot hold our annual “A Day at the Derby” fundraiser, but we are excited to be working with local businesses to find ways to continue our fundraising to support many of our future charitable causes. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to our members and our community for all that you do. We are so proud to be part of such an outstanding group of women. -Lauren Martin WMJWC President
