We are helping out our sister League, Junior League of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, with their efforts in meeting some of the needs stemming from the recent flood striking the Louisiana area.
YOU CAN HELP
If you would like to participate, we will be collecting items at this Wednesday’s (August 24, 2016) General Membership Meeting. Some of your fellow Leaguers will be traveling to Louisiana to drop-off donations.
But there’s more! We will announce new locations for our Pensacola community to drop-off items for this drive. We are grateful to be partnering with several local Pensacola businesses to help support this drive. More details coming soon.
Donations may also be purchased online and shipped directly to the Junior League of Baton Rouge. You may ship items directly to:
JLBR, 9523 Fenway Avenue, Baton Rouge, LA 70809
