We Can't Do It Without You!

Publicity and Marketing
The Publicity Committee markets, brands and promotes the Women's Association for Morristown Medical Center. The objective is to build awareness of WAMMC, its mission and related activities.

Business & Fundraiser Committees
Gift Shops in MMC
The Corner Store Gift Shops are WAMMCE-operated businesses that provide income to our organization. The shops provide retail merchandise, professionally presented, to serve the needs of patients, visitors, staff and volunteers at three locations within Morristown Medical Center: Deskovick 1, Goryeb Children's Hospital and Gagnon Cardiovascular Institute. The purpose of the Gift Shop Committee is to oversee the management of the shops. Volunteers act as sales clerks in the gift shops and will be required to interact cheerfully with customers as well as use the cash register.
The Bargain Box Thrift Shop
The Bargain Box is a thrift boutique that offers gently used clothing, accessories, books and household items for sale. This WAMMC operated business provides income to our organization as well as a valuable service to the community. Volunteers should be great shoppers themselves with knowledge of quality brand names to help sort through donations.
Mansion in May
Mansion in May is the preeminent fundraising event of the Women's Association for Morristown Medical Center. During "Mansion years", the designer showhouse is open everyday in May, and is preceded by a formal Preview Gala and exclusive media kick-off events. We will be looking for committee chairs beginning in the Fall before a Mansion Year. We utilize over 1,000 volunteers in the months leading up to a Mansion but especially during the daily business hours of the Mansion in the month of May.
In off-Mansion in May years, WAMMC organizes event fundraisers which require a variety of different volunteers leading up to the event and the day of the event. We are currently working on our Farm to Table 2022 fundraising event which will benefit the Nurses' Residency Program at the Sameth Emergency Department at Morristown Medical Center.
