Fort Bend County has suffered catastrophic damage as a result of Hurricane Harvey and the unprecedented rain and flooding that has followed. The women of the Fort Bend Junior Service League (FBJSL) have stepped up in a number of ways to help the community in this time of need. Members of FBJSL have been collecting and delivering needed supplies to various non-profit agencies all over Fort Bend County, volunteering to assist with clean-up efforts, and donating 300 remaining 2016 Sugar Plum Market bags to the Stafford High School hurricane relief shelter for guests to keep their personal belongings. Additionally, FBJSL has set up a Harvey Community Assistance Fundraiser to raise funding for relief efforts.

The Harvey Community Assistance Fundraiser, established through the Fort Bend Junior Service League Community Assistance Fund, will allow FBJSL to continue giving back to the various charitable agencies that are suffering. It will also aid those agencies in their own recovery due to the devastation of Hurricane Harvey. Non-profit organizations interested in applying for a grant from these funds may apply online at www.fbjsl.org. Community Assistance Fund applications can be found under the “Community” tab and by clicking “Request Support”.

To contribute to the FBJSL Harvey Community Assistance Fundraiser, please visit www.fbjsl.org. Donations are tax deductible and can be made directly online through the link on the FBJSL home page. The Fort Bend Junior Service League is a 501(c)(3) organization. It is an organization of women committed to promoting volunteerism, to developing the potential of women and to improving the Fort Bend County community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Their purpose is exclusively educational and charitable as well as providing an atmosphere of friendliness, goodwill and camaraderie for all members.
