Junior Service League of Beaufort welcomes new members

The Junior Service League of Beaufort, an organization of women committed to volunteerism, welcomes 22 new members for the 2014-15 league year. The 22 provisional members will join the league’s 39 active members to carry out the league’s service projects, signature projects and fundraisers.

“We’ve got a great group of provisional members who are dedicated to helping our community,” league president Amanda Sutcliffe-Jones said. “These women are eager to participate in the league’s volunteer work as well as organize the league’s signature projects.”

Members in the Junior Service League of Beaufort volunteer weekly at both Citizens Against Domestic Abuse and the Child Abuse Prevention Association. Members also host an annual blood drive in the winter and a free prom dress boutique in the spring. The year culminates with the league’s annual barbecue in April, which raises funds the league then distributes to area organizations that help women, children and families. Members also participate in several social events throughout the league year.

“We were able to donate more than $8,500 to area nonprofits last year through funds raised at our barbecue and provided about 75 girls with prom dresses through our prom dress boutique,” Sutcliffe-Jones said. “We look forward to another successful league year.”
