The JCO’s partnership with NJ Cares and their Frosty Friends program during the holiday season was a huge success for the third year in a row. JCO members generously helped fulfill and deliver holiday gift wishes for 150 New Jersey children in need.
On October 3, 2017, the JCO of Northern Bergen County kicked off their 2017-18 year at their annual Membership Breakfast. Over 75 women gathered at a member’s home in Upper Saddle River to catch up with friends over breakfast and learn about upcoming social events, fundraisers and service projects.
During the month of October, the JCO collected gently used and new socks to donate to Knock Knock Give A Sock, an organization that helps the homeless by giving them the least donated article of clothing: socks. Breakfast attendees generously donated several pairs of socks in support of the drive.
An extra special thank you to B&M Market in Park Ridge, NJ for the delicious treats they generously donated for our breakfast!

On Friday, September 15th, over 50 JCO and Junior JCO members gathered to make Rosh Hashanah cards for local Bergen County Seniors. The attendees stamped apples in paint and wrote sweet messages to card recipients. Everyone also munched on delicious apples, challah and honey sticks. It was a terrific way to kick off everyone’s Rosh Hashanah celebrations as a community!
The JCO wishes everyone a happy and healthy and sweet 5778!
