Junior League of Helena is looking for new members!

The Junior League of Helena is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable. The Junior League of Helena was founded in 2020, although the Association of Junior Leagues International, Inc. as a whole has been around for 100 years.

We do a variety of things for the community and strive for diversity. I would like to tell you about a few projects we have been completing. A big initiative for our league this year is our Teddy Bear Drive for St. Peter’s Mobile Crisis Unit. Our goal is to collect at least 100 teddy bears for children in crisis situations. We are also hosting Free Laundry Days throughout the year! Detergent, dryer sheets and quarters will be provided at the chosen laundromat, those who come in that day will have their laundry paid for. This relieves a big financial burden for some families who may have difficulty affording laundry service. We also hosted our first annual Hand Warmers for the Homeless drive this past winter. We were able to collect 160 units of hand warmers, toe warmers, hats and gloves which we passed along to The Good Samaritan Street Outreach Program to be distributed to the homeless in our community.  These are a few of the projects we have been blessed to be a part of, and we are looking forward to taking on more different projects in the future!

We would like to invite you to join The Junior League of Helena! You can be a part of a group of strong, kind women who are ready to take charge in making a difference right here in our community. Meetings are held the second Wednesday of the month at 6:00 pm through zoom or in person. Your children are welcome to join in the meetings as other members have children who attend, and the children are our future leaders. It is a great time for all, and you will make a difference. We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting!

Pray with the Pope the month

Pope Francis: pray that people who suffer from depression or burn-out will find support and a light that opens them up to life.

In this video from the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network, Pope Francis recognizes that many people experience mental, emotional, affective, and physical exhaustion. He asks us to strive to be close to those who are exhausted, to those who are desperate, without hope. To not forget that together with the indispensable guidance of a psychologist, which is useful and effective, Jesus’ words also help. Read More “Pray with the Pope the month”
