The Junior League of Cincinnati recently celebrated 90 years of ‘Going to Great Lengths for our Community’ with a beautiful luncheon at the Westin Hotel. What a tremendous milestone for a volunteer organization of women whose sole purpose is education and charity.
Through the years I’ve known a number of colleagues and friends who have been involved with the Junior League. I’ve also known many of the organizations who their generosity has impacted. Most people probably don’t realize the Junior League developed ProKids, the Cincinnati Art Museum Docent Program, and the Children’s Theater and Choral Group.
Recently the group over 80 new pajamas to help keeps kids at ProKids and the YWCA Battered Women’s Shelter warm. These first two weeks of December, Junior League members are participating in a number of holiday projects including providing dinner for 30 people and decorating cookies for children at the Bethany House; and making holiday crafts and treats at Our Daily Bread. Then in January, they’ll start the year with a fleece blanket project for the Ronald McDonald House.
Thank you to all of the volunteers at the Junior League of Cincinnati for all that you do to spread kindness and improve lives.
