The theme for the 2018-2019 League year is, “Celebrating Our Past - Inspiring Our Future” and as an organization we will commemorate our 90th anniversary year by giving back to our community in a big way. The Junior League of High Point’s 90 Hours for 90 Years Volunteer-a-thon is a service project designed to honor the League’s ninety year legacy of service to High Point with ninety consecutive hours of signature projects and partnerships to aid and assist our community. Starting Thursday, November 8th and continuing through Monday, November 12th, members of the Junior League will participate in service opportunities that align with and support our mission to improve the health, education, and welfare of women and children.
Some of the community partners who have already committed to collaborating with the Junior League of High Point by participating in our 90 Hours for 90 Years Volunteer-a-thon include: the American Red Cross, the High Point Public Library, the YWCA, Girl Scouts of the Piedmont, GoFar, High Point Theatre, and Project Linus.
Taken as a whole, the Junior League of High Point’s 90 Hours for 90 Years Volunteer-a-thon will support of a number of community programs and engage not just the three hundred or so members of the Junior League, but countless others in our community. As a (conservative) estimate, across the ninety hours, we expect to provide nearly five hundred hours of service by Leaguers and our community partners.
We will honor the Junior League’s 90 year legacy of service to High Point with ninety consecutive hours of signature projects and partnerships that support our mission to improve the health, education, and welfare of women and children.
