The (JLCW) invites women from Eastchester, Greenburgh, Scarsdale and White Plains to its semi-annual “Recruiting Coffees” at historic Wayside Cottage on September 20 at 8:00 p.m. and September 21 at 9:30 a.m.
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. The JLCW invites women of all races, religions and national origins who are committed to volunteerism to become a member.
At the informational coffees, prospective members will learn about the JLCW’s efforts to improve the lives of neighbors in need, as well as the activities that support these initiatives, including fundraising and development, volunteer training and communications. Joining the JLCW provides opportunities for volunteers to impact their community in a meaningful way, to benefit from training in a variety of educational and leadership programs, and foster life-long friendships and professional relationships with fellow volunteers and members of the community in which they serve.
New members enter a training course where they work together to complete a short-term community service project. Last year’s Fall New Member project was a diaper drive that successfully collected over 55,000 diapers for local children in need. The short-term projects are designed to help the community, allow members to get acquainted with the League, and foster networking between new members.
“Our membership encompasses the full spectrum of central Westchester women, including professional executives and stay-at-home moms, who share the same commitment to making an impact on the community and building life-long friendships,” stated Lauren Wyler-Smith, President of the JLCW. “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.”
The coffees will be held on September 20 at 8:00 pm and September 21 at 9:30 a.m. at Wayside Cottage, 1039 Post Road, Scarsdale NY.
