Informational Coffees to be Held on January 23rd and 24th, 2014
The Junior League of Central Westchester (JLCW) invites women living or working in Eastchester, Greenburgh, Scarsdale and White Plains to its semi-annual “Recruiting Coffees” at historic Wayside Cottage on Thursday, January 23, 2014, 8pm and Friday, January 24, 2014, 9:30am. The JLCW is an organization of women committed to promoting volunteerism, developing the potential of women by providing leadership training and improving the community through numerous volunteer projects. The JLCW is comprised of diverse women from Central Westchester and we welcome the opportunity for women of all races, religions and national origins who are committed to volunteerism to become members.
At the informational coffees, prospective members will learn about the JLCW’s efforts to improve the lives of neighbors in need, as well as the activities that support these initiatives, including fundraising and development, volunteer training and communications. Joining the JLCW provides opportunities for volunteers to impact their community in a meaningful way and foster life-long friendships with fellow volunteers and members of the community in which they serve.
Each year, the JLCW opens its doors to women of Central Westchester who want to become involved in an organization that makes a difference in the lives of hundreds of local children and individuals, offers training in a variety of educational and leadership opportunities, and provides opportunities for personal growth, leadership and lifelong friendship. It’s a great way to meet other diverse women in Central Westchester and get involved in the community.
New members enter a training course where they work together to complete a short-term community service project. The short-term projects for new members are designed to help the community, allow members to get acquainted with the JLCW, and foster networking between new members. The Spring 2013 new member class sponsored a “Family Funday” Tag Sale to raise money for various charities supported by the JLCW.
“I am excited to welcome a new group of dynamic women to the JLCW who share our commitment of making a meaningful impact in our community,” stated Julie King, President of the JLCW. Our membership includes professional executives to stay-at-home moms and everyone in between, I look forward to calling them my friends and working with them on many projects in the future.”
The coffees will be held on Thursday, January 23, 2014, 8pm and Friday, January 24, 2014, 9:30am. at Wayside Cottage, 1039 Post Road, Scarsdale NY. Women interested in learning more about the JLCW should RSVP by January 20th, 2014 to firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone to (914) 723-6130.
