Congratulations to the 296 Junior League of Phoenix volunteers for surpassing our annual community impact goal of 1800 hours. From August through February, JLP Provisionals, Actives and Sustainers have completed 2080 hours of service with long-lasting partnerships like UMOM and the Children’s Museum of Phoenix as well as new partnerships like the Valley of the Sun United Way’s Read Across America Initiative.
Done in a Night Updates: JLP has also completed substantial donation drives for very deserving partner organizations. In January, members brought formal dresses, shoes and accessories for Cinderella Affair, an organization that provides prom and formal dresses for juniors and seniors who cannot afford them. At our General Membership Meeting, all league members in attendance helped create over 400 ‘swag bags’ filled with makeup, nail polish and other goodies to make their night super special. In March, JLP members brought donations for Dress for Success and Free Arts for Abused Children AZ.
In April, JLP will host a virtual donation drive for items to be packed in care packages for the homeless. Items will include cases of water, sunscreen, chapstick, socks, hats and other essentials, but instead of purchasing physical items, donors can easily purchase these items easily and at any time.
