Community

Since 1928, the Junior League of Greensboro (JLG) has dedicated volunteers and resources to issues facing our community. The JLG strives to create meaningful and lasting impact in the community through its membership and its efforts with community partners. Each year the League identifies organizations to directly partner with by providing time, talents, and funds

Our Current Partners

Over the past year the Junior League of Greensboro has worked diligently to identify organizations throughout Greensboro that serve older adults and their caregivers.

Church World Services Refugee Welcome Team

The Junior League of Greensboro will work in partnership with Church World Services to provide furnishings and decorate 4 apartments for new refugee arrivals. This project will make a direct impact by helping newly placed refugees have a welcoming and safe place to live in Greensboro.

Kellin Kids

The Junior League of Greensboro will work in partnership with The Kellin Foundation to organize and facilitate 6 sessions of educational programming for children ages 2-18 enrolled in the Kellin Kids program. Kellin Kids is a program built to encourage kids to find their passion, utilize their talents, and give their time to make a difference in the community. Kellin Kids is dedicated to kid-developed, kid-driven solutions to community problems.

Junior League Kids in the Kitchen

Kids in the Kitchen is a national Junior League initiative that began in 2006. Kids in the Kitchen addresses the growing problem of childhood obesity by using hands-on curriculum that educates both the parent and child on healthy eating choices. Junior League volunteers will be responsible for delivering food demonstrations for children at LeBauer Park monthly.

Community Housing Solutions of Guilford

The Junior League of Greensboro will work in partnership with Community Housing Solutions of Guilford to provide home repairs to 5 homes that may include building ramps, roof repairs, floor repairs, landscaping, and accessibility modifications. Community Housing Solutions’ mission is to make Guilford County homes warmer, drier, and safer by providing repairs and ownership opportunities to low-income homeowners.

Hands on Help

Hands on Help is an initiative designed to increase the scope of impact in the community with needs that come up on an ongoing basis. The focus is to partner with local nonprofits or organizations for done-in-a-day projects needing volunteers and funding. Once projects are approved, the Hands on Help committee assists with logistics and requests for general membership volunteers to complete the project for the community partner. Some of last year’s projects were a gift-wrapping station at Greensboro Farmers Market, assembling food packs for Backpack Beginnings, and sorting/distributing food with Out of the Garden Project’s Fresh Mobile Markets. Fill out the form to be considered for a Junior League Hands on Help project this year.

Community Impact

The Community Impact Fund is used for one-time emergency assistance within our community. This figure represents 3% of our overall funding.
