The Junior League of Greensboro announces support of Community Housing Solutions for tornado relief efforts.
The League recently voted to allocate the Community Impact Fund to tornado relief in Greensboro. The Community Impact Fund is a percentage of the Junior League of Greensboro’s annual community program budget and is used to meet an unplanned, immediate need in the community when it arises.
After the recent tornado in Greensboro, the League opened a community impact donor fund to combine with the Community Impact Fund. In less than 24 hours, this fund received more than $1,000 in donations. The Junior League Community Impact Fund committee voted to give both budgeted and donated funds (over $3,000 to date) to Community Housing Solutions.
Community Housing Solutions, a Greensboro non-profit organization, spent the last week supporting impacted families with triage home repair support. This included putting tarps on home roofs and boarding up windows to mitigate further damage. This is the first step to begin to make homes habitable again, as what remains must be preserved.
The Junior League of Greensboro is committed to supporting Community Housing Solutions and their tornado relief efforts through the end of May. To support this initiative, donations will be accepted to the Community Impact Fund through May 31, 2018.
