The Manasquan Woman's Club recently received some disheartening news when it was determined their club building - which is a centerpiece of their organization for raising funds to help support the local community - had to be closed down pending some very expensive repairs. Please read the article below from a recent issue of the Coast Star for details.

The Club has been part of the community since 1909. Their membership spans many generations with one common goal - enhance the quality of life within the community as well as the world by participating in meaningful and fun projects. These projects include raising funds for high school scholarships, supporting the Manasquan Library, raising awareness for the women's shelter and mental illness, among other worthy concerns.

The club building was built by the Manasquan Woman's Club in 1929 with proceeds raised exclusively by the club members, and has been their home ever since. We hope you will join us in spreading the word about this unfortunate situation and help this historic and generous organization get back on its feet the way it has helped so many others in our community.

Repairs and renovations are estimated between $150,000-$200,000. If you would like to help in any way, whether financially, by volunteering or otherwise, please contact Wendy Helfer at  You can also find them on Facebook
