HOPE – The Hope chapter of Junior Auxiliary has begun a new program year. The organization, whose primary focus is helping children and meeting community needs, has several projects planned for the upcoming year.
“Some of the things we have planned for this program year are our Annual Spaghetti Supper, Glow Golf Tournament, Baggo Tournament and our new Bunko event. These fundraisers are used for Scholarships for seniors in Hempstead County,” said incoming president Lyndsi Easterling. “This year, students from Hope, Spring Hill, Blevins and Garrett Memorial received scholarships funded by events like these,” said Easterling.
One of the JA chapters biggest projects is Sweet Reads. Members of Junior Auxiliary go into first grade classrooms in Hempstead County and read to children. Students are all given a take-home book to encourage family literacy engagement and to aide in building home libraries.
The chapter also plans to have service events like Train Days, Canned Food Drive, Breakfast with Santa, Trunk or Treat Downtown and National Night Out to interact with and aide community members. They will also help with coat donations and school supplies as needed.
