The GFWC Conservation Community Service Program is designed for members to gain an appreciation of our environment. Through preservation, maintenance, and restoration of our natural resources, it strives to educate members about the importance of beautifying our communities; preserving, maintaining and restoring our natural resources; and stimulating citizen action to address these concerns. Our natural resources include, but are not limited to, water, trees, plants, air, land, and wildlife.
Repairing broken items keeps them out of landfills. NJWC has twice hosted a Repair Cafe to fix items such as furniture, appliances, and clothing free of charge. These cafes are staffed by volunteers who are skilled in specific areas. Our next Repair cafe will be held on Saturday, March 9th, 2019 from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. at Trinity Church.
Twice a year NJWC holds a polystyrene/Styrofoam collection so that these materials can be recycled instead of being dumped into a landfill. Our next collection will be held in May, 2019 at the DPW garage.
