Junior League of Northern Westchester - We Build Women who Build our Community

President's Message


Welcome to the Junior League of Northern Westchester!

As President, I would like to thank you for taking the time to visit our website. Whether you are a current member, interested in becoming a member, or visiting this site to learn more about our outreach in the community, we hope this communication tool proves to be valuable.  Please check back as the year progresses and as we update the information about our programs.

The JLNW is a women’s leadership organization made up of nearly 200 community minded individuals committed to promoting voluntarism within our community, developing the potential of women in our community, and improving the lives of those who live in our community.

Whether seeking opportunities to volunteer, to meet new like-minded women, or to improve professional development and/or community leadership skills through training, the Junior League offers a variety of opportunities for you. The JLNW is a group of enthusiastic and talented women with a variety of interests and backgrounds, who nonetheless share a common goal to make our Northern Westchester community a better place in which to live.

In this, our 60th year of service, I encourage you to consider joining us as we strive to “build better communities” through some of these upcoming volunteer and fundraising opportunities:

  • 33rd Annual Holiday Sharing Drive - Providing hundreds of needy families each year with holiday gifts and meals since 1980.
  • Back Pack Buddies -Providing weekend food supplementation for children in our community who receive subsidized meals during the school week.
  • Support the JLNW through our Annual Campaign – Annual campaign funds are comprised of unrestricted funds given by individuals to support our programs.
  • Benefit Boutique - An entertaining evening of great shopping, food and friends that supports the JLNW's programming.  This year's Benefit Boutique will be on Thursday, November 14, 2013--save the date!

I am constantly inspired by the tireless efforts of our JLNW members, all of whom share a true commitment to our mission and to improving the community in which we live.  Please join me and the JLNW and help make a difference in Northern Westchester!
