The Junior League of Pelhams “Love Pelham” Annual Fund Campaign is underway and continues through Tuesday, December 24. With a donation of $20 or more, you’ll receive the delivery of a snowflake decoration on the outside of your home.
Any donation of $100 or more and you’ll receive a custom Pelham ornament.
Last year the annual fund drive raised close to $15,000, and helped make possible projects such as:
● Home-cooked meals and warm clothing for the homeless.
● Educational enrichment programs for local children.
● Assistance for victims of domestic violence.
● The inaugural Pelham Service Fair on Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service.
● More than $5000 of grants to community programs focused on healthy families, education and local improvement.
With a goal of $15,000 this year, the JLP will once again honor donors with a beautiful snowflake adorning their home. And donations of $100 or more will be recognized with an original Katy Garry ‘Love Pelham’ ornament. Note: If you missed out on last year’s ornament, you’ll receive both the 2018 and 2019 editions (plus the signature silver snowflake!) with your donation of $120.
“The Junior League of Pelham strives to improve our community—and those around us—through a vast and diverse array of projects and programming,” said Lisa Horten, president of the JLP. "Every dollar raised during our annual fund drive goes directly back into making Pelham an even better place to live. We’re constantly assessing the needs of the community and doing all that we can to contribute in a meaningful way.”
In addition to a lineup of ongoing projects that includes a regular storytime at the Pelham Public Library, meal deliveries to the CSA in Mount Vernon, and educating preschoolers on STEAM topics, this year's annual fund drive will also help support the league’s latest signature project: the revitalization of Julianne’s Park. The goal of this multi-year initiative is to preserve and upgrade the beloved park so that it can continue to be enjoyed by Pelham residents for years to come.
The Junior League of Pelham is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.
