Join the Junior League of Seattle on Saturday, April 5, 2014 by making an impact on the community and promoting volunteerism! Approximately 100 trained volunteers will be providing direct service at over 10 volunteer events across the greater Seattle area, offering much-needed volunteer resources to improve the health, education and welfare of women and children. Volunteers will be participating in a wide variety of projects to serve the following community organizations: YWCA, Boys & Girls Club, Solid Ground, Mary’s Place, Youthcare, Lifewire, Northwest Harvest and Food Lifeline.
Formed in 1923, the Junior League of Seattle (JLS) was founded on the idea that the greatest way to make a positive impact on the community is to empower and train female leaders while promoting voluntarism. Over the decades, JLS has made an unprecedented contribution to the welfare of women and children in the Puget Sound area by developing projects that are still making a difference today.
90 Shifts for 90 Years
This year, the Junior League of Seattle celebrates its 90th anniversary as the premier women’s organization in the Puget Sound area. In honor of our anniversary, JLS is committed to completing 90 service shifts to make an enormous impact in the community. 90 Shifts for 90 Years is a memorable way to commemorate our dedication and enthusiasm for community service. Throughout the year, JLS members have been volunteering their time and skills in a wide variety of service shifts. We are close to our goal of 90 shifts and need everyone’s help and support for our Big Day of Service!
League members are invited to save the date and sign up for a volunteer shift. This is a great occasion for committees and provisional groups to join a shift together to celebrate the year’s work. Additionally, this is one of the last opportunities to obtain service shift credit for member obligations.
Shifts are visible on the JLS website and will be located in multiple locations throughout the greater Seattle area. You are welcome to bring friends and family to volunteer, and again, our goal is to have as many volunteers out in the community at the same time. Help JLS reach our goal of 90 service shifts for 90 years, with at least 100 volunteers, and give back to our community.
We need your help to make April 5 the best Impact Day yet!
