The Sussex Women’s Club was founded in October 1968. Over the course of 50 years this organization of energetic and dedicated women has accomplished so much. They have supported organizations such as The Seeing Eye Dogs, The Eye Institute of NJ, and the Community Food Bank of New Jersey. They have also worked with other groups like the Garden Club to clean up and plant a garden at the Gazebo in Sussex. They also raise money for scholarships awarded to local students in Sussex County. Several of the members have also served the boards of Women’s Clubs at the state and national levels.

Their reach extends beyond Sussex County through their support of international projects. They have collected shoes for Soles for Soles and are currently raising money to purchase life saving vaccines for children in developing countries through Shot @ Life.

The Sussex Women's Club has also decided to continue to offer their energy and generosity by collecting school supplies and clothing to be taken to the Dominican Republic this November by Dominican Team Trips LLC. The trips to the DR had been organized for the past 14 years by the Spanish Cultural Club at Sussex County Technical School. Since retiring from Sussex County Technical School, Mary Rapuano is continuing to organize humanitarian trips through Dominican Team Trips, LLC.

Interested in finding out more about the Sussex Women’s Club? Come to a meeting. They are held the first Monday of each month from September through June at 7 p.m. at the Sussex/Wantage library, 69 Route 639 in Wantage. Refreshments are served.

To find out more about the annual Dominican Team Trips, LLC to the DR, contact Mary Rapuano at maryrap@gmail.com.
