JLstrong Stores: Fundraising

Junior Leagues across the Association are taking many steps to support and encourage our members, donors, communities and organizational partners as we adapt to the changes we currently face. These inspiring stories are playing out across our Junior League Movement. We hope to capture the evolution of Leagues reacting to this unfolding crisis.

Hard work, generosity, and the spirit of voluntarism are needed now more than ever as we navigate these unprecedented circumstances and the uncharted waters ahead. Together, we are #JLStrong.

    Created the JLBC Pandemic Response Fundraiser for Ridgecrest to raise money to purchase non-perishable food, fresh produce, cleaning items and toiletries for residents in this community hit hard by Covid-19.  And, the JLBC matched the first $1,500 in donations!  Nice work, JLBC!

    Promoted their Fostering Change Fund, through which they have already granted $3,800 to seven youth, six of whom had needs directly related to COVID-19, including job loss, medical expenses and rental assistance.  Kids aging out of the foster care system are at risk of falling through the cracks; the JLCS is there to help.  Great job.

    Created the JLC Covid-19 Relief Fund so they can respond quickly to their community partners.

    Created the JLLR Emergency Community Grant Program to provide short-term funds to eligible nonprofit organizations in Pulaski County working to meet the needs of women and children during the COVID-19 crisis.  Community partners through and through.
