Members of the JLA Volunteered Their Time In Many Different Ways To Help Others In Need
Annapolis, MD – [April 28, 2006] – The members of the Junior League of Annapolis, Inc., (JLA) organized and completed over 25 community service projects designed to be finished in a day, to meet a challenge put forth by the League President, Carole Mendez, to honor the 25th anniversary of the Annapolis League. These volunteer activities, also called Done In A Days (DIAD) are focused to meet a variety of community needs.
Many of the JLA members participated in events before school even started, such as Kids ‘N Kaboodle “a free fair for all children to attend” , Book Bag supply drive, and a clean up day at the Chesapeake Children’s Museum. Throughout the fall there were several fundraisers and a Halloween party for disadvantaged children. During the holidays there were food drives and toy drives and a party for foster children. Through the winter, there were many nights that JLA members cooked and served dinner to patrons of the Lighthouse Shelter in Annapolis and spring cleaning brought many donations to the League’s Totally Terrific Tag Sale.
The generosity of its members has enabled the Junior League of Annapolis to exceed its goal of 25 DIAD to celebrate 25 years as a League and to contribute to the well being of the women and children in Anne Arundel county and with the continued support of everyone involved in the League will continue to do so for many years to come.
