SCARSDALE, N.Y. In an effort to boost recruitment, the Junior League of Central Westchester ( JLCW ) will hold two informational coffees at historic Wayside Cottage in Scarsdale.
At 8 p.m. Sept. 20 and 9:30 a.m. Sept. 21, women from Eastchester, Greenburgh, Scarsdale and White Plains dedicated to volunteer work are invited to attend the semi-annual recruiting events.
Women of all races, religions and nationalities who are devoted to helping others are invited to become members.
The JLCW is an organization of women committed to promoting volunteerism, developing the potential of women and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers, media Co-Chair Christine Pasqueralle said in a statement.
At the informational sessions, current members will inform prospects of the JLCWs efforts to improve the lives of the less fortunate, as well as the activities that help support these initiatives.
Joining the JLCW provides opportunities for volunteers to impact their community in a meaningful way, Pasqueralle said. They will benefit from training in a variety of programs, and foster lifelong friendships and relationships with fellow volunteers.
New members will be trained while completing a short-term community service project. Last year, new members conducted a diaper drive that collected more than 55,000 diapers for local children. The projects are designed to help the community, allow members to familiarize themselves with the league and begin networking with fellow volunteers.
Our membership encompasses the full spectrum of central Westchester women that share the same commitment to making an impact on the community, President Lauren Wyler-Smith said. I look forward to welcoming a new group of dynamic women, calling them my friends and working with them on many projects in the future.
Women interested in attending the informational coffees are asked to RSVP by Friday, September 14 to firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone to (914) 723-6130.
