WHAT PEOPLE SAY

— Liz Brock, Volunteer Center Coordinator

United Way of Anderson County 

"I always look forward to the Junior League of Anderson County volunteers coming to help with our Weekend Snackpack Program. These ladies are very passionate about our program and they enjoy packing bags for children in need. A lot of the women are educators and see the children we serve each and every day. They always show up with a smile on their face, ready to pack and serve our community. I appreciate our partnership and hope they will continue packing bags."

Junior League of Anderson County's Signature Programs

 

Seats for Safety​​

  • The Junior League of Anderson County (JLAC) partnered with the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office (ACSO) to help promote child safety in Anderson County, South Carolina. The “Seats for Safety” assistance program will allow for sheriff’s deputies to intervene in unsafe situations and aid families in need by providing appropriate car seats for unrestrained children.

 

 

Kids in the Kitchen

  • What can we do together in the fight against childhood obesity? Let’s start by involving kids and their parents in a hands-on environment that actually focuses on preparing healthy foods. The goal of the Junior Leagues’ Kids in the Kitchen initiative, which is supported by The Association of Junior Leagues International, Inc. and its member Leagues, is to promote child health and wellness by empowering children and youth to make healthy lifestyle choices, therefore preventing obesity and its associated health risks. JLAC has partnered with New Foundations Home for Children to deliver cooking demonstrations and health/nutrition education to children and teens.
