IN THE COMMUNITY

Making an Impact After Hurricane Matthew: Gift Card Donations

Thousands of people across our state have felt a tremendous impact from the effects of Hurricane Matthew. Many of us are from these towns or have loved ones and friends in these areas that were hit the hardest. We have heard firsthand the challenges these people are facing and will continue to endure in the months ahead.

We, as a League, have a great opportunity to pull together and support these areas through various relief efforts. What an opportunity we have to impact our state by supporting those who need it the most!

How can you help now?

Gift Cards Donations – We are collecting gift cards to Target and Walmart in five dollar increments to distribute to people in impacted areas. Drop off gift cards with a staff member at the Julia Jones Daniels Center for Community Leadership. Gift cards will be sent to the Junior Women’s Association of Greenville, NC and Junior League of Fayetteville every Friday starting October 21. These groups will distribute them to hurricane victims in their areas.

We will also be rolling out several other ways that we can participate in relief efforts. Stay tuned for more information in the coming days.
