JLT Community Involvement
For over 80 years, the Junior League of Tuscaloosa has focused on children’s health and well-being. They are grounded by a rich tradition of philanthropic endeavors, yet remain a dynamic organization of women, capable of adapting to the ever-changing needs of the Tuscaloosa community and their members. Proceeds from fundraisers like the T-Town Shop Around Card, Breakfast with Santa, and the newest addition, Tuscaloosa Dragon Boat Races, are giving back to the community in accordance with their mission – to develop to potential of women and improve the community. Since 1997, the JLT has served Holt Elementary School through the Adopt-A-School program and recently received the proud distinction of “VIP Partnership” by the Chamber of Commerce. In the past 18 months their efforts have been directed toward post-tornado relief and rebuilding. They have provided necessities, such as medicines, clothing and school supplies, as well as summer essentials kits, containing educational and entertaining toys, games and snacks to promote an active and healthy lifestyle during summer break. Two weeks after the April 27th tornado, the JLT hosted “heART for Holt” art therapy workshops with all Holt Elementary children, allowing them the opportunity to express their feelings and vivid memories of the devastating storm through paint and canvas. As the school rebuilds, the JLT plans to provide continued support and volunteers to meet ever-changing needs.
