who we are

At this time and per base restrictions, we will not be hosting any more in-person socials. May is our last month for the term of the year, so we will be ending it with a Virtual Trivia Night. Please visit our Trivia Night page for more information.


We hope to generate as much funds as possible through our Virtual Trivia Night for our scholarship fund. Our annual scholarship contest is  for Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst military dependents: high school seniors, dependents continuing studies, and spouses continuing studies. The more we receive, the more we can give back to our JB MDL community. The scholarship winners will be announced on May 26th.


Lastly but not least, we are refurbishing and updating the basketball court for the dorm residents on JB MDL as our legacy gift for 2020-2021.

The Spouses’ Organization is a non-profit dedicated to volunteering and community involvement. We host socials on the second Tuesday of every month to strengthen our community. We welcome military spouses of all ranks and branches. We also work closely with the Spouses of JBMDL Org Thrift Store to raise funds for our philanthropic endeavors. We have also added a Cinderella's Closet for women and daughters of the military to have access to a wide variety of dresses to wear for FREE on special occasions at our clubhouse.
