Girls Inc. of the Valley received a generous donation of 90 backpacks for their elementary school girls, from the Junior League of Greater Springfield (JLGS).

Girls Inc. of the Valley aims to inspire all girls to see themselves as leaders with the skills and capabilities to improve and influence their local communities. This  donation from JLGS, a non-profit organization of women committed to promoting volunteerism, allows both organizations to accomplish their missions. JLGS continues to improve communities through effective action and leadership of trained volunteers and develop the potential of women.

“The Junior League of Greater Springfield is committed to the promotion of literacy and serving women and children in our community. With the backpack donation project, our volunteers recognized an urgent need for the girls of the Pioneer Valley and jumped into service,” said Assistant Treasurer of The Junior League of Greater Springfield, Jaime Margolis. “It has never been more important to us to help lift and support young women in our community. We hope to continue to build on the relationship between Girls Inc. of the Valley and Junior League of Greater Springfield for a long time to come!”

JLGS aims to improve the lives of children and families in the community by collaborating with other organizations to assist families in need and to promote literacy and education. This directly aligns with the mission of Girls Inc. of the Valley, therefore, helping both parties accomplish their goals. More importantly, this gift will help support numerous girls in the community to be successful.
