Halkiotis is featured on the cover as well as in a six-page spread within the magazine where she proudly shares how the JLG is actively helping the aging community with our volunteer work and financial assistance. “The Junior League of Greensboro doesn’t shy away from important issues,” says Halkiotis. “Aging is something that affects all of us, even younger people who may be dealing with caregiver duties for an elderly parent or grandparent.” To address this need, the JLG has committed $28,500 and 55 volunteers to our community partners this year.

The article also features several photos of Randall Ariail, JLG member and Bargain Box manager, inside the store and highlights how the thrift store has helped fund nearly $3 million for our community programs since its inception. “We’ve started to rely more on social media to increase our following at the Bargain Box and show the community all the great, high-quality inventory we have for men, women, and children,” says Ariail.
Writer Melody B. Davis ends the article saying, “When you think of 200 women, with the same determination to help people as this year’s Junior League President, Christon Halkiotis, you can’t help but think of the groundwork the Junior League is laying now for generations to come.”
