GFWC-NC Juniorette President’s Message
I am so excited to be the 2019-2020 GFWC-NC Juniorette President. Volunteering and helping people are my passion! It makes me so happy to know that I can make a difference in the world. I am a senior at A.L. Brown High School in Kannapolis and have been a member of the A.L. Brown Juniorettes for 4 years.
My GFWC-NC Juniorette President’s Special Project is Helping Kids with Cancer. I chose this project because my aunt is a childhood cancer survivor. The stories that she and my mom share about the wonderful things that volunteers did for them made me want to do the same for others.
Here are some project ideas: donate supplies needed by local pediatric hospitals; get your school and community to help collect supplies for them; donate to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospitals; or just spend time with the kids!
One way that ALL GFWC-NC clubs can help support Helping Kids with Cancer is participating or donating to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospitals. September 28, 2019 is the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospitals Run/Walk in Charlotte and Raleigh. If you can attend one of these events it is an amazing experience. But if you cannot attend, please help raise money through the GFWC-NC Juniorette Team. Here is the link to donate or join our team http://walkrun.stjude.org/GFWCNC_Juniorettes.
Thank you for this opportunity to serve GFWC-NC as the Juniorette President. I look forward to an awesome year!
In Federation Service,
Julia Clark, GFWC-NC Juniorette President

September 2nd is Labor Day
Labor Day is a public holiday celebrated on the first Monday in September. It honors the American labor movement and the contributions that workers have made to the development, growth, endurance, strength, security, prosperity, productivity, laws, sustainability, persistence, structure, and well-being of the country.
“No work is insignificant. All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
GFWC-NC wishes everyone a safe and very healthy Labor Day Weekend!
