For over 50 years the Cranford Jaycees have combined networking, community activity, individual development, and training while making friends for life. Participating in volunteer community events, establishing rewarding friendships and professional contacts, and the gratification of servicing humanity are just a few of the member benefits.

Throughout the year, the Cranford Jaycees hold many events to raise funds that go towards the Jaycees Scholarship Fund. Additionally, the Jaycees are frequently called upon to assist with man power to help run an event in the town. We work with the Chamber of Commerce and the Girl Scouts in decorating of the Town Christmas Tree. We also work with the Cranford Recreation Department with the annual Township Halloween Parade and Pumpkin Drop.
