The JLGL is the Proud Recipient of the GiveWell Community Foundation!
The JLGL is the proud recipient of the GiveWell Community Foundation(GWCF) through the Impact Polk 2022 grant cycle for our annual Clothe the Community initiative!
Through our Clothe Our Community initiative, Junior League of Greater Lakeland partners with local nonprofits and other organizations to make sure our neighbors have greater access to clothing security.
We address this in two main ways: clothing closets and clothing backpacks. For higher grade levels, a clothing closet offers a sense of choice and independence. For younger grade levels, backpacks allow students quick access to the bare necessities. Both are provided in ways that aren’t shameful to the student.
This initiative is so important to the community and we are grateful we can continue serving the children of Polk County each year!
