Fort Bend Junior Service League finalizes 2020-21 year with more than $165K given to Ft Bend community

Posted

The Fort Bend Junior Service League recently concluded its 2020-21 League year and is pleased to announce that despite the challenges presented during the pandemic, it distributed $165,700.00 to the Fort Bend community this year. 

Proceeds raised from its annual Sugar Plum Market which was virtual this last year due to the pandemic allowed FBJSL to support dozens of worthy charities and scholarship recipients.  Specifically:

  • $6,000 was distributed in April in the form of Volunteer Scholarships to 6 high school graduates with outstanding achievement in volunteerism and community service;
  • $21,700 was distributed throughout the year in the form of Community Assistance Fund grants to 10 charities for support of critical or basic needs and/or expansion of significant services to the Fort Bend community; and,
  • $138,000 was distributed in December in the form of Event Beneficiary funding to 19 agencies that align with the League’s mission, purpose, goals, and Position Statements.

The Fort Bend Junior Service League is an organization of women committed to promoting volunteerism, developing the potential of women and improving the Fort Bend County community through volunteer efforts. 

Proceeds from various events and fundraisers have made it possible for FBJSL to donate more than $4.5 million to non-profit agencies in the Fort Bend community since its inception in 2001.
