Membership

 

Thank you for your interest in the Junior Welfare League. We welcome you in our effort to connect with other        service-minded people. 

 

The League offers TWO membership options:

 

General Member    or    Friend of the League

 

Benefits of Membership

 

·             Friendship – Good friends you can count on are necessary for a healthy lifestyle. Sharing our intentions of      helping others less fortunate creates a bonding experience, as “I can” becomes “we can.”  Studies show that having      strong friendships helps reduce stress, improve self-esteem and increase longevity.

 

·             Networking – Come share knowledge and ideas that will help develop your personal growth and philanthropic interests. The League provides is a perfect opportunity to build relationships with different people from different      walks of life.

 

·             Opportunity for Young People - Many of our members’ children have become involved as well. Whether it’s stuffing donated backpacks with new school supplies or shopping for holiday gifts and food items for families living below the poverty line, membership can be a family affair.

 

Responsibility of Membership

Meetings are held once a month and are designed to be productive forums for discussing initiatives and updates.

 

Members serve on two committees each year. Since The League does not have administrative costs, we function      with the support of our members. Remember, there is no staffing, no marketing or advertising budget.

 

Each member is required to participate in our Holiday Charities program by purchasing gifts and household           supplies for a child in need assigned before Thanksgiving.  Members are provided with the first name, age and      gender of the child, making the giving experience much more meaningful. 

 

The League has a variety of events and initiatives over the course of the year that members are expected to support      as best they can.

 

Friend of the League

Becoming a Friend of the League offers tremendous value and flexibility. It allows men, businesses, family and friends–local or not–to help the Junior Welfare League’s mission of easing the lives of those who need it most.                    With this level of membership, there is no obligation to shop, attend meetings or stuff envelopes.

 

A  $350 membership provides you with:

·      One ticket to each of our fundraisers:  our Spring luncheon benefitting our Camp Cases program and our evening fundraiser benefitting our Lift Fund.

·      A contribution toward grocery gift cards for our Holiday Charities program.

·      A contribution to our Camp Cases program that sends needy children to summer camp.

·      A contribution to our Backpacks for Success program that provides children with new backpacks brimming with all the school supplies they need to start the year off ready to learn.
