SUMMIT, NJ - The Summit Junior Fortnightly Club (SJFC) has a solution for those looking to bridge the 'virtual valentine' gap and, even sweeter, the initiative raises funds to benefit GRACE.
For just $12, a SJFC 'Cupid Crew' will deliver a 'Candy Gram' -- a bag of nut-free treats -- to the doorstep of a neighbor, providing a fun way to share Valentine’s Day cheer and raise money for a meaningful cause.
Summit-based GRACE, founded by Hilltop City resident Amanda Parrish Block, works to improve the health of low-income individuals, families, and senior citizens by providing food and supplies to Summit residents in need. At the end of 2019, GRACE supported an average of 85 to 100 households a week. Due to the community impact of COVID-19, GRACE has -- since March 2020 -- been serving more than 400 families a week.
To order a 'Candy Gram', visit sjfclub.org/candygrams by February 10. Quantities are limited, and the delivery area is limited to Summit, New Providence, and Berkeley Heights. 'Candy Grams' will be delivered by February 12.
The Summit Junior Fortnightly Club, a 501(c)(3) organization, is a women’s social and philanthropic club dedicated to community service and outreach, with a focus on improving the welfare of families and children in our community.
