The local Soroptimist club is a volunteer organization of business and professional women both active and retired dedicated to serving the needs of women and girls in Southern Ocean County. They are an active chapter of Soroptimist International since 1956.

Proceeds from the annual fundraiser go to support local programs and scholarships. In 2017 the group’s scholarships included six to graduating seniors from Barnegat, Southern Regional and Pinelands high schools.

The Soroptimists also operate “Suit Up for Success,” a women’s boutique in Stafford Township where women in need can obtain work clothing at no cost. They support Coastal Volunteers in Medicine, St. Francis Sexual Abuse program, local food pantries, Southern Ocean Women’s Health night, Providence House for domestic violence survivors, Girl Scout “camperships,” Ocean Harbor House for juveniles and Big Brothers/Big Sisters.
