Dear Friends of Fort Bend Junior Service League,
For almost 20 years, the women of Fort Bend Junior Service League (FBJSL) have enjoyed camaraderie, friendship and the joys of volunteering together to make Fort Bend County a better place. Since our inception in 2001, the League has raised over $4 million dollars for charitable organizations in our community. In addition to money, the ladies of FBJSL work tirelessly volunteering and provide an amazing 20,000+ service hours annually to our community.
Our Members have the opportunity to volunteer with any of our Core Placements. These agencies each meet an important and diverse need for our community, serving a wide spectrum of Fort Bend County residents. We conduct a bi-annual review of placements and explore opportunities to work with new ones.
In addition to volunteering with our Core Placements, members of FBJSL work on our largest event, the Sugar Plum Market. The Market is our annual fun-filled holiday shopping extravaganza with more than 100 vendors. Ladies in the league work on this event year-round and last year’s record-breaking year raised over $335,000 for more than 25 deserving Fort Bend County charitable organizations. The 2019 theme is “Joy to the World” and we encourage you to join us at the Stafford Centre on November 8th and 9th to shop and help bring joy to Fort Bend County! Or better yet, become a Sponsor or purchase a Preview Night Ticket for the evening of November 7th, and enjoy an exclusive night of shopping before the general public. This fun, festive, holiday event will certainly be magical!
The wonderful accomplishments made by FBJSL both at the Sugar Plum Market and with our Core Placement agencies could not have been possible without the hard work and dedication of each and every one of our amazing volunteers. From our newest members, to our long-standing members; and from our Sustaining members (Ladies over 50), to our Teen League members (Young Ladies in 9th -12th Grade); each of these women offers a unique perspective, talent, and contribution to FBJSL. We are a diverse group, who are passionate about giving back to our community!
