Bring your donation of non-perishable food items, and/or Supermarket Gift Cards to the NCJW/Essex office and to every NCJW/Essex event!

Patty’s Pantry
The ability to feed one’s family is one of the most basic responsibilities a woman faces. Patty’s Pantry was created to meet the immediate food needs of the NCJW/Essex Center for Women clients. Housed in the Center for Women, our staff can assist women by offering non-perishable food items donated by NCJW members.
