2019-2020 Junior League of San Angelo President
From the President
Welcome from the Junior League of San Angelo!
I am so excited and honored to be president of JLSA this year and to be part of an organization that is so dedicated to Choosing the Path of enacting positive change in our community!
JLSA has an amazing legacy of service. Last year was recording breaking for us in many ways, and we have no plans to slow down this year.
In 2018-2019, our Children’s Literacy Project (CLP) gave over 1200 books to area children and partnered with two elementary schools to assist children with their reading and to educate parents on the lifelong benefits of literacy. We are so excited to continue our outreach to area schools with CLP this year and to continue delivering books in our one-of-a-kind mobile library!
By completing small projects in one day, our Done-in-a-Day (DIAD) program allows us to fulfill specific needs all over our community. Last year we partnered with over 25 local organizations through our DIAD program. This year we plan to carry out events at the West Texas Boys’ Ranch, support families at National Adoption Day, purchase Christmas gifts for the Forgotten Angels, and so much more.
Our largest service project, Student Closet, serves children in need of adequate clothing. Our goal for this year is to clothe 650 students – a goal that we surpassed last year! In May 2019, we added a component to our Student Closet initiative with our Little Black Tee campaign. With the accomplishments of this campaign, we are more motivated than ever to serve our local children and educate our supporters about our Student Closet Program.
This year we are also planning on teaching over 600 children about health, exercise, and nutrition through our Kids in the Kitchen and Health Hearts, Early Starts events. And we’ll of course cap off our year with Touch-A-Truck – an event providing children of all ages the opportunity to touch and explore vehicles of all shapes and sizes.
My theme for JLSA this year, “Choose Your Path,” displays the excitement of a new chapter for the Junior League of San Angelo, as we each use our own individual talents and experiences to choose to make a positive change in our community. Working together, I cannot wait to see what we accomplish this year!
