WOMAN’S CLUB ASSISTS MORRISTOWN FIRE VICTIMS
MORRISTOWN, NJ, February 23, 2015 – The Woman's Club of Morristown recently donated $4500 to assist the 23 people displaced by the January 30 Elm Street fire. Each of the nine affected households received Walmart gift cards worth $500 from the Operation Holiday fund, a charity co-sponsored by the Woman's Club and the Daily Record newspaper. While the American Red Cross initially helped the families with temporary lodging, food, and clothing, a town-sponsored support effort is also under way. The Woman's Club's gift represented another way to make a positive
impact in the community.
Operation Holiday, sponsored by the Woman's Club of Morristown and the Daily Record, has been a Morris County tradition since 1971. Its mission is to help “those in need in the Morris County area.” The non-profit
effort, entirely run by volunteers, has no overhead costs, so 100% of donations benefit the program's clients.
