It reads:

Not only could area youth be seen chatting with police officers, asking them questions and checking out the various equipment they use on the job, but they also had the opportunity to get free, donated books. In an attempt to promote literacy, The Junior League of Poughkeepsie, an organization of women who contribute to their community in a host of altruistic ways, were on hand with an impressive amount of books to hand out to children.

JLP Holiday Party 2018

By | Events | No Comments

On Friday, December 14th, 2018, the Junior League was thrilled to have over 80 members and guests join together at the Vassar Alumni House, for our annual Holiday Party. It was a great mix of Actives, Provisional Members, and Sustainers and we were able to swap different ideas and stories.

We were also able to collect donations for Give Way to Freedom. Give Way to Freedom is a private operating foundation that creates and supports targeted, culturally relevant projects aimed at providing care and empowerment to survivors of Human Trafficking, as well as those vulnerable to trafficking. Our vision is global awareness of the human trafficking crisis and the creation of worldwide sustainable freedom.
