August was a record-setting month for International Women in Jazz (IWJ) and Stop & Shop Store #522 at 111 Vredenburg Avenue, Yonkers, New York! IWJ was selected as the Community Bag Program benefiting nonprofit organization for the month of August by store management. Shoppers spoke loudly through their Community Bag purchases, and IWJ benefited to the tune of $4,026!

International Women in Jazz is committed to supporting women Jazz artists and related professionals. Through its programs, IWJ provides information and assistance to its members, thus standing dedicated to actively ensuring a place for women as a vital part of the past, present, and future of Jazz. International Women in Jazz will be the subject of a Community Impact story coming in November.
