October 2017 Community Involvement Fund

At the October Board of Directors meeting, it was decided that the October Community Involvement Fund grant would be given to the Hampton Newport News Community Services Board.  This $250 grant will support their Thanksgiving meal.  This meal will support those patients who would otherwise spend the holiday alone.

About the Community Involvement Fund

Every year, the Junior League of Hampton Roads budgets a set of funds to be distributed throughout the year as small grants.  The purpose of these grants is to fulfill urgent and time-sensitive needs for community organizations.  Each month, the Board reviews the requests from the community and awards one of these grants.

If you are a part of a community organization who would benefit from this grant, please e-mail us at volunteer@jlhr.org.
