Fort Bend, Texas:
The Fort Bend Junior Service League (FBJSL) continues its annual recruitment drive for the 2021-2022 League year. The organization is seeking women 21 and older interested in community service, fellowship and philanthropy. The League, which is best known for its Sugar Plum Market event, has raised over $4.5 million dollars that has been distributed to Fort Bend County charities.
To join, the Membership Application can be accessed at https://www.fbjsl.org/join/how-to-become-a-member/. FBJSL will also be hosting multiple virtual and in person recruitment events over the summer where potential new members can learn more about the League. Information regarding attending these events is available at www.fbjsl.org or on the FBJSL Facebook page at www.facebook.com/FortBendJuniorServiceLeague/.
“Our world has transformed greatly over the last year. While some of our lives are getting closer to being back to normal, many of our neighbors are still desperately in need. It is critical that we, as the Fort Bend Junior Service League, continue to increase our community support,” says Director of New Members, Jessica Gregory. “If you have a heart for service and are interested in joining a group of outstanding women that work to make our community a better place, we encourage you to join us on our mission.”
The FBJSL partners with Child Advocates of Fort Bend, Fort Bend Seniors Meals on Wheels, Gigi’s Play House Sugar Land, Gods Garden and Reining Strength Therapeutic Horsemanship. FBJSL also volunteers at events hosted by East Fort Bend Human Needs Ministry, Fort Bend Rainbow Room, Hope for Three, Houston Museum of Natural Science at Sugar Land and the Literacy Council of Fort Bend.
The Fort Bend Junior Service League (FBJSL) is an organization of women committed to promoting volunteerism, developing the potential of women, and to improving the Fort Bend County community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Our purpose is exclusively educational and charitable as well as providing an atmosphere of friendliness, goodwill and camaraderie for all members.
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.
