Since 1991, the Junior League of Hampton Roads has disbursed small, one-time grants to non-profit organizations who have a pressing, urgent need.
During the 2015-2016 League year, the League disbursed $2,000 in funds to local organizations such as Hampton Roads Housing Development Corporation, Newport News Healthy Families, and VersAbility Resources.
Between June 2016 and May 2017, the JLHR aims to donate more than $3,500 for specific, local needs. To date, donations have been made to the following organizations:
- The American Red Cross
- Hardy Elementary School
- Virginia Peninsula FoodBank
- Local Families Battling Cancer and Other Health Issues
- Davis Middle School
- Old Towne Medical and Dental Center
- Camp for Kids
