The holidays are an especially tough time of year for foster youth. JLOEB is helping to make this holiday season more festive for foster youth ages 16-21 in transitional housing at Bay Area Youth Center (BAYC). While toy drives serve the needs of younger children, teens and young adults are often underrepresented. Help make the holiday bright by purchasing an item from their Amazon Wishlist by Dec. 15 to make sure it gets to them by Christmas! Feel free to share the wishlist with coworkers, friends and family to help ensure their wishes are fulfilled!
Every day Junior League members give back to the community. On Tuesday, December 1st, people from around the world will come together to celebrate a day of generosity and giving.
Thank you to JLOEB members Harriott Silliman, Jessica Romeo, Tess Costanzo and Randi Ervin for coming out to volunteer at Habitat for Humanity ReStore this weekend! We worked very hard great cause!
