The Junior League of Morristown is pleased to announce its 21st Annual Lunch with the Authors will be held on Friday, May 5. Hosted at the exclusive Hamilton Farm Golf Club in Gladstone, NJ, our luncheon is an invitation to an uplifting and enchanting afternoon with friends and family benefiting our local community. Doors open at 11am and the event begins with a basket raffle with wine for purchase. Guests will then be seated for an elegant three-course luncheon while they hear remarks from nationally acclaimed authors. Jenny Jackson, author of Pineapple Street, Jean Hanff Korelitz, author of The Latecomer, and Karen Winn, author of Our Little World, will discuss their latest work, answer questions, and sign books before and after the luncheon. The event concludes at 3pm with the announcement of the raffle winners. This special afternoon will provide a philanthropic opportunity to support the Junior League of Morristown including its Scholarship Program, which has awarded over 160 Scholarships totaling more than $270,000 since 2022. For those who cannot attend, please consider a charitable donation.

In the Spring of 2020, the JLM decided to allocate monies from the Tribute Fund to start the JLM Helps campaign. The JLM Helps campaign is designed to help bridge the gaps where funding, supplies, and volunteer presence may have been lost to COVID-19 and where individuals need a hand up to get through these tough times. 

As of December of 2020, the JLM has donated over $11,000 as part of the JLM Helps campaign to a variety of community partners including Visions and Pathways, Roots and Wings, The Neighborhood House, Weekend Meals for Madison Students, NourishNJ, Jersey Battered Women’s Services, Interfaith Food Pantry, Homeless Solutions, Table of Hope, and CareFull.  Our donations have helped to ensure additional food security for clients, to provide PPE to community members, to help transition from in-person to virtual client services, and to mitigate the costs of transportation to places of employment, grocery stores, and health care facilities.

If you would like to support the JLM Annual Fund, please consider making a donation here. All donations will be tax deductible. 

JLM Community Volunteer Projects and Partners

Our three committees, TEEN (Teen Education Empowerment Network), MHC (Making Healthy Choices), and HH (Helping Hands) have been working hard with community partners to help meet the needs of our community. 

In September of 2020, the TEEN Committee responded to a growing need for backpacks at the start of the school year and donated 80 backpacks to four different community partners.  In October, they worked with the Neighborhood House to support their teens during their “Fitness Week” and packed up 25 fitness kits with resistance bands and healthy snacks.  In November, they provided meal kits and hosted a virtual one-pot cooking class for eight teens at the Neighborhood House. 

In October of 2020, the HH Committee donated more than 1,800 diapers and many miscellaneous baby supplies to Homeless Solutions to help meet the growing needs of their clientele.  In preparation for the Thanksgiving holiday, the committee also donated over 75 food items, 10Pyrex dishes, 10 crockpots, and 3 turkeys to Jersey Battered Women’s Services.  During the month of December, the committee is working with FBI Special Agent Keyla Munoz to support human trafficking victims with a donation drive via Amazon Wish List.  If you would like to support the committee, please visit this link to view the Wish List. 

In September and October, the MHC Committee hosted two events with Grow it Green, a local community partner dedicated to creating sustainable farms and gardens to educate communities on healthy eating and environmental stewardship.  In November, the committee collected and donated over 350lbs of food to the Interfaith Food Pantry to support their Thanksgiving food drive.  Our members also helped prepare Thanksgiving meals and desserts for Interfaith Food Pantry’s clients.  During the month of December, the committee adopted a family through the Salvation Army and has purchased numerous items to support them during the holiday season. 

Scholarship Awards 

Since 1986, the Junior League of Morristown has awarded over $270,000 to High School seniors in Morris & Somerset Counties who demonstrate an outstanding commitment to voluntarism in their school and community. 

For the past 12 years, the JLM began awarding a $2,500 Women Moving Forward scholarship to a woman 40 years of age and older, who is planning to attend or is attending college or trade school after taking time away from school.

We are pleased to continue with the Post-Secondary Education Grant that was created in 2019.
