A “Driving” Force in Community-Junior League & Chevy
September 1, 2011 4:40 pm CT
With more than 1,200 dedicated women volunteers, The Junior League of Jacksonville truly is a driving force in improving education and community in the city. This year, Chevy wanted to help the organization’s newest members and transfers get to know more about the league’s charitable involvement by providing transportation to a few of its key volunteer landmarks.
The ladies started their morning by loading eight new Chevy vehicles with school supplies and then driving (2 Volts, 2 Equinox, 2 Traverse, Tahoe Hybrid and a Cruze) to Annie R. Morgan Elementary School to drop off the materials. Here, the ladies also learned more about the league’s volunteer and tutoring opportunities at this Title 1 school where a high percentage its students are on a free or reduced lunch program.
The tour continued with a stop at The Sanctuary on 8th Street and Community Connections where presenters were able to share how Junior League programming such as “Done in a Day” volunteer opportunities really help to make a difference in the lives of children and families.
The day was also a chance for Junior League’s new members and transfers to meet and learn more about each other. With so many fabulous ladies on board, there was a lot of fun, smart and hilarious chit-chat in our Chevys – surely the beginnings of many friendships.
