The Junior League of Fort Worth Announces Fall Day of Giving
Volunteers Will Serve Over 30 Local Agencies
FORT WORTH, NOVEMBER 8, 2018 – The holiday season is always a reminder of what we should be thankful for and in turn a time to give of our time and talents. The Junior League of Fort Worth will be holding its biannual Day of Giving on Saturday, November 10, 2018, placing volunteers throughout Fort Worth and Tarrant County to serve organizations that provide critical services to our community.
Over 220 League members will be out and about on Day of Giving supporting 30 agencies. The volunteers will be helping with projects at the many organizations throughout the day including assisting with sex trafficking education at Worthy Co., providing an art space for teenagers at My Health My Resources (MHMR), helping spruce up facilities at Rivertree Academy, making cards for patients at JPS Hospital, and sorting and packing food for pets at Don’t Forget to Feed Me. Supporting the mission of the League, Day of Giving promotes voluntarism amongst its many members and allows for trained volunteers to experience and learn about the numerous resources in our community.
“We are extremely excited to send our amazing volunteers out to these great organizations that impact our community. Each of our volunteers knows the commitment the organizations make to help uplift members of our city and are eager to contribute to their legacy. Our partnerships, old and new, demonstrate our commitment to bettering our community one volunteer at a time,” said Satoya Williams, Junior League of Fort Worth Day of Giving Co-Chair.
