The Junior Woman’s Club of Rutherford is a non-profit volunteer organization of women, working together for the betterment of their local, state and global communities.

Giving back to our community

Among the local causes we’ve helped are the Rutherford Food Pantry, 55 Kip Center (our local senior center), Center for Hope and Safety (a domestic violence shelter), the Rutherford Public Library, the Rutherford PBA and Volunteer Fire Department.

In addition, we sponsor scholarships for two local high school seniors and provide a system of support and encouragement for our members and the community.

What We Do

Our signature events include the annual Snack with Santa and spring Ladybug Festival & Release. In addition, we:

• Create and donate baskets for teachers and library staff during teacher appreciation week
• Create gift baskets for children at a domestic violence safe house
• Sponsor a soldier serving our country
• Run the local spelling bee
• Operate a care calendar to provide meals for members who have experienced a serious illness, death in the family, or the birth of a baby

Our members also enjoy:

• Monthly Book Club
• Girls Nights Out
• Children’s talent show (at our June meeting)
• Access to a list of local babysitters
