AAUW is the oldest women’s organization in the USA. Our mission is to advance equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, and research. We have general meetings and various interest groups. Our major fundraiser is our annual used book sale.
All members, even new ones, are encouraged to participate as board members, group chairs, convention attendees, and book sale workers, in order to get the most out of the AAUW experience.
JANUARY BRANCH MEETING: Tue, Jan 9, 6:30 PM at Bernards Township Library – East African Trade Route, presented by Robin Marion – We are sure to enjoy learning about another part of the world from our branch member’s well-researched slide presentation of her travels. Why not invite a friend to enjoy an evening out with us? Light refreshments will be served.
HOLIDAY CHARITY REPORT: For this year, as we have done a number of times in the past, we chose to support our local Food Banks – The Food Bank Network of Somerset County and the Interfaith Food Panty of Morris County. We made a $235 combined monetary donation along with 3 full bags of canned food to these organizations that do so much for the less fortunate in our area. Our gifts will allow these organizations to fill in the gaps in providing critical services over the holidays. Thank you so much!
