Fort Bend, Texas:
The Fort Bend Junior Service League (FBJSL) continues its annual recruitment drive for the 2022-2023 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 community needs us now more than ever. Some are still suffering from the effects of the pandemic. Our members can be the support system our residents and businesses need to thrive once again,” says Director of New Members, Jamila Carroll. “We are recruiting the best of Fort Bend County – women who have a heart for service and want to join us in building bridges and creating positive change. If that sounds like you, please plan to attend one of our information sessions in June or July.”
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.
