Woman’s Club of Middletown Plans Annual Holiday Gifts Trees Project

Preparations for the Woman’s Club of Middletown’s 18th annual Holiday Gift Trees project will highlight the club’s daytime and evening meetings this month. Daytime members will meet Thursday, November 2 at 12:00 p.m. and evening members will meet Thursday, November 9 at 7:30 p.m. Both groups meet in Harlan Hall, at the Westminster Presbyterian Church, 94 Tindall Road, Middletown.

Trees, in place from Friday, November 24 until Friday, December 15, will be located at six facilities: PNC Bank – Chapel Hill, Santander Bank – Harmony Road, Santander Bank – New Monmouth Road/Highway 35, the Ocean First Bank – Shop Rite Plaza, and the Sunrise Senior Living communities in Lincroft and Middletown. Public participation is invited and the donated gifts will be distributed by the Visiting Nurses Association in Belford.

Members recently enjoyed a program outlining the activities of Habitat for Humanity of Monmouth County, presented by director Kate Nelson. Holiday gift wrapping at Barnes & Noble in Holmdel and the club’s annual Letters from Santa will be held in December. In addition, members will be participating in activities to support Prevent Child Abuse, New Jersey, the 2016-2018 Special State Project of the New Jersey State Federation of Women’s Clubs of GFWC, the club’s parent organization.
