Deadline Extended – Jill Pope Community Partnership

Each year, the JLT seeks out a new community partnership project to further our mission of improving the lives of children and families of our community.  The JLT Community Partnership program aims to assist local nonprofits in launching, re-launching, or growing a project through the motivation of  JLT’s volunteer power, promotional power, and financial grant support capabilities.  Priority consideration will be given to community partners seeking assistance with providing women and children with basic needs such as food, clothing, school supplies, and personal hygiene products, as well as those organizations that seek to raise the confidence and self-esteem of women and children.

We welcome the opportunity to learn more about your organization and we look forward to learning more about your ideas for projects and/or programs, in which the JLT could assist you with implementing. The deadline to submit the application is December 1, 2017.

Tallahassee Democrat: Junior League of Tallahassee helps local children shop for school

Junior League of Tallahassee helps local children shop for school

On Sunday, members of the Junior League of Tallahassee helped more than 100 local children shop for back-to-school items at its annual Kids’ Boutique shopping event. In partnership with Kohl’s, event sponsor American Classic Agency and CenturyLink, the League purchased back-to-school items including clothes, shoes, backpacks and school supplies.

President Taylor Hatch said, “We are so pleased to be able to help families with clothes and supplies so that these amazing kids can go to school with confidence and have a successful year. Thank you to our partners at Kohl’s, American Classic Agency and CenturyLink, as well as all of our volunteers for making this annual event a success.”

The Junior League of Tallahassee works directly with guidance counselors at Leon County elementary schools to identify children who are in need of essential school items. There is no cost to the student or his or her family to participate.
