Jazz House Kids | 347 Bloomfield Avenue

Founder Melissa Walker was prepped to be a lawyer before opportunities in music kept showing up all around her. She attributes her ability to follow her heart and be a jazz artist to great mentors in her life. Now, through Jazz House Kids, Melissa is providing students with the opportunities she had by mentoring them. Jazz House Kids combines music, mentoring, education, and leadership to help serve students in the community who may face a financial gap in being involved with music. Her program opens opportunities to learn and grow with music. Jazz House Kids also hosts the Montclair Jazz Festival annually. Support from donors is needed to keep her “little wishes” going. Learn more here on how to get involved.

Toni’s Kitchen | 73 South Fullerton Avenue

Toni’s Kitchen is an organization that has provided the community in need with food resources. Toni’s Kitchen now provides 20,000 meals every week, an increase of 4,300 pounds per week since 2019.

Van Vleck House + Gardens The Montclair Foundation | 21 Van Vleck Street

Like many of Montclair’s residents today, the founders of Van Vleck House came to the area to move away from the hustle of New York City. Since 1868 the Van Vleck House has provided a beautiful garden refuge. Over the last two and a half decades, the management board has overseen the hard work and support of volunteers who keep up with the house and gardens. The gardens are open 365 days a year for meetings, retreats, fundraisers, and more. Learn more here on how to get involved.
