Funds raised at this event will be used to fund JLGA’s Family Literacy project, as well as the organization’s various Community Outreach volunteering efforts.

JLGA hosts several fundraisers each year to support the organization’s efforts, which include training and empowering women leaders through volunteerism in the community. In addition to an issue based community impact project, JLGA members also take part in various volunteer efforts throughout the community each year, including, most recently, Bucket Brigade and the First Presbyterian Church’s Saturday Cafe.

The Junior League of Greater Alton, established in 1952, is a non-profit volunteer organization dedicated to empowering women and making the community in and around the Riverbend a better place for a diverse population of children and their families. Upon researching the area’s needs, JLGA most recently teamed up with Lewis and Clark Community College’s GED program to help improve family literacy in the region. JLGA is a chapter of the Association of Junior Leagues International, Inc. and is dedicated to the training and development of local women leaders and volunteers making an impact in the community.
