The township of Millburn/Short Hills is widely known for its affluence and generosity.

Some of the ways that people look out for each other are through Down the Block, Inc and the United Way of Millburn-Short Hills.
Down the Block, Inc is an organization created by township resident Wendi Weill, to help township residents with unexpected financial setbacks to pay their bills. Down the Block, Inc supports the township and in turn the township supports Down the Block, Inc. When the United Way of Millburn-Short Hills discovered that one third of the Down the Block applicants were single parents, they gave Down the Block, Inc a special grant to help these families. Founder Weill expressed her gratitude for this grant, explaining that many single parent households have nowhere else to turn other than Down the Block, Inc.
