2021-2022 Junior League of San Angelo President
From the President
Dear JLSA members and community partners,
I cannot tell you how excited I am about the league year ahead of us. It is a true blessing to be surrounded by such an amazing group of women who serve our community with such determination and passion. I have selected “Be the Light” as our theme this year to represent the league as a whole. Each of you are important to this league, and I look forward to watching us shine our light into the community.
We are expected to carry on the legacy that over 75 years of women have established. We are committed as an organization to Be the Light in our community through our service projects, fundraising, and programming.
Our largest service project, Student Closet, provides quality clothing to children in need and has a goal of serving 700 children in our community this year. The achievement of this goal would be the largest number of kids served by this project to date. This is a huge need in our community and we are making a significant impact in the lives of these children by giving them new clothes to wear with confidence.
This past year our newest Legacy Project, the JLSA Family Resource Center inside the Children’s Advocacy Center, opened its doors and has served over 400 families.
“Done in a Day” projects are one day-day projects that are designed to meet a specific need in the community. Over the years, we have partnered with dozens of community partners and local agencies to provide a volunteer force for organizations in need. We will also be researching new ideas to allow us to Be the Light in San Angelo.
Our Children’s Literacy Project has put thousands of books in the hands of our community’s children. This past year we were able to install our first of many Story Walk’s at Unidad Park. This story walk will not only enhance a child’s reading ability but will also promote outdoor activity.
We will also continue our programs that focus on fighting childhood obesity by promoting a healthy lifestyle: Kids in the Kitchen and Healthy Hearts Early Starts. These events are some of our largest volunteer opportunities and are run solely by our provisional class.
We will end our year with our annual Touch-A-Truck community event, which provides a very unique opportunity for children to explore vehicles of all types.
Over the next few months, we have some very important decisions to make about how we will spend our time and the resources we have been so generously blessed with. Thank you for committing to BE THE LIGHT in Junior League with me. I cannot wait to see what this year has in store and what we will accomplish all together.
