The Holiday Sharing Drive is one of the Junior League’s signature events and in 2016 the League is working to provide food and gifts for 200 families. For 36 years, the Junior League of Northern Westchester has worked with local agencies to make the holiday season brighter for struggling families in our area. Recipients include single-parent families, senior citizens, homeless families, physically challenged individuals, families suffering deep financial duress, and families struggling with terminal illness.
With the aid of community service organizations that partner with the JLNW, recipient families are identified and matched anonymously with donors. HSD raises awareness of local poverty and hunger; promotes volunteerism by offering a volunteer opportunity for individuals, families, schools and scout troops, among others in our community, and improves the lives of those most in need in our community.
Please consider helping us reach our goal of providing a wonderful holiday for all 200 families identified. This is a wonderful opportunity to teach youngsters within your own family the importance of altruism and care for one’s community. Both League members and community members can participate in the Drive by sponsoring a family of small, medium or large size, purchasing a “big ticket item” or donating gift cards to local grocery stores. We’re looking forward to a wonderful event and thank you in advance for your support!
UPDATE: We thank you for all your support. We have reached our goal of sponsoring 200 families in need!
