Fort Bend, Texas:
The Fort Bend Junior Service League (FBJSL) supports the Fort Bend community in numerous ways. Its Community Assistance Fund (CAF) allows FBJSL to provide grants of up to $5,000.00 to charitable causes serving Fort Bend County that need financial support to fund a critical need, pilot a program, or expand a significant service to the community. Recently, FBJSL awarded several CAF grants.
Hope Fort Bend Clubhouse received $1050 for the purchase of laptops to support the agency’s virtual learning efforts. Hope Fort Bend Clubhouse provides free psychosocial services to our Fort Bend County residents who have a mental health diagnosis.
Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council was awarded $2,500 to provide financial assistance to Fort Bend girl scouts for program costs such as membership dues, uniforms, and other program materials.
Gods Garden received $5,000 to purchase gypsum for the new section. God’s Garden provides a viable means to bring fresh organic vegetables to those most in need in the local area and inspire them to make their own gardens.
Camp Kesem Rice was awarded $1,100 to purchase camp supplies for Fort Bend residents who attend the agency’s free, student-run, week-long Summer camp for children affected by a parent or guardian’s cancer.
These agencies provide valuable resources to our local community and FBJSL is honored to support their efforts!
