Complete bags containing one of each of the items are the goal, but individual items are also welcome and extremely helpful.
 
The food will be distributed to families in need each week during the month of August when school programs are no longer providing meals. After bag drop-off at the church, those donating are invited to visit the JLS table on the Green to learn more about what the organization does in the community and how interested parties can help.
 
The Junior League of Summit is a nonprofit, charitable and educational organization of women who are committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving the communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.
 
The JLS operates the popular Thrift Shop, located at 37 DeForest Avenue in Summit. Established in 1934, it offers new and gently used clothing and shoes for men, women and children, toys, decorative items for the home, house wares, and furniture that is deeply discounted.
 
The Shop is the primary fundraiser for the JLS, and has provided the resources for the League’s many grants, projects, programs, and scholarships over the years. Since its inception, the Shop -- one of only two thrift shops in New Jersey featured in the book True Prep -- has raised more than $3,000,000 to benefit Summit and surrounding communities.
