President’s Message

39412B57-E5CE-412D-8DA0-012DBC7367B9Thank you for visiting The Junior League of Greensboro website.

We are thrilled you are here to learn more about:

As we embark on our 90th anniversary of Women Building Better Communities, The Junior League of Greensboro stands strong as a resource in the Greensboro community. Since 1928, we have been a community catalyst funding projects and programs, training and empowering volunteer leaders to work throughout the community and offering opportunities to all to engage in service.

I encourage you to visit the history section of the website to learn about the wide array Junior League projects from helping to start the Gateway Education Center to hosting the annual Women’s Leadership Summit and more recently our gift of The Junior League Reading Room at LeBauer Park.

During the 20172018 year, we will continue our existing projects such as Touch a Truck , Women’s Leadership Summit, and our training program in partnership with the Bryan School of Business and Economics at UNCG: Women to Watch (W2W). Our thrift store, the Bargain Box, is now located at 1410 Mill Street. All shoppers and donors are encouraged to come visit for great deals on clothing for men, women, and children. All proceeds from the Bargain Box fund our mission.

The Junior League of Greensboro strives to work on the greatest unmet needs in our community. After careful research, our membership selected aging as our focus for the next three years. Our members will be working in the areas of food assistance, support for grandparents raising grandchildren, fraud prevention, and housing improvements to enable seniors to age in place for as long as possible.

Our passionate volunteers work so hard to make these projects a reality, but we could not do it without our supporters. We are so appreciative of the great partnerships with individuals, companies and organizations in our community that are integral to the success of our work. Learn more about partnering with the JLG on our Impact section.

Again, thank you for your interest in The Junior League of Greensboro and I hope you will return soon! If you have any questions or would like additional information about our organization, please visit our Contact Us Page. Feel free to also contact our office at 336.852.5542.

Sincerely,
