The Junior League of Savannah is now accepting applications for “Done in a Day”, Community Projects and Community Assistance Funds. Done in a Day includes six to eight projects that the Junior League of Savannah undertakes each year in which Junior League volunteers assist local organizations or social service agencies through hands-on volunteer work and funding of up to $1500.00 per project.
Typical projects include assistance with painting, gardening, special events or physical improvements.
The projects are generally scheduled over a time span of a one-day period on a Saturday or Sunday, with a need of ten to fifteen volunteers.
Community Assistance Funds are awarded once a year and represent an additional financial commitment to the community. Partnerships and funding are available to all local 501(c)3 organizations that are within the program focus area of Women and Children’s Advocacy. Currently, the Junior League of Savannah focuses its efforts on women and children’s advocacy. The Junior League of Savannah believes that women and children deserve to be empowered through quality opportunities in order to thrive and to be contributing members of our community. To apply, visit the Junior League of Savannah’s website at www.jrleaguesav.org or call the League’s Headquarters at 912-790-1002. The application deadline is Nov. 15, 2012.
