JUNIOR LEAGUE OF COLUMBIA RECOGNIZED WITH COMMUNITY PARTNER AWARD
During the Girl Scouts of South Carolina-Mountains to Midlands Annual Business Meeting on Saturday, January 23, 2021, the Junior League of Columbia was honored with the 2nd Annual Community Partner Award.
Much like the Girl Scouts, the Junior League of Columbia is a member organization focused on developing leadership opportunities for women. The Junior League of Columbia is committed to promoting volunteerism, developing the potential of women, and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.
This year the Junior League of Columbia generously provided Girl Scouts of South Carolina – Mountains to Midlands with a $12,600 grant focused on healthy living, and invested countless volunteer hours, through a new project specifically for girls called “The Girl League.” The weekly virtual opportunity focuses on new themes each month.
The Junior League of Columbia was selected as the recipient of the annual Community Partner Award because they understand the importance of investing in the girls with their time, talents, and treasures.
Junior League of Columbia President, Anna Edwards, attended the Annual Business Meeting, virtually, to accept the award. Ahead of the business meeting, Edwards was presented the award in person by Girl Scouts of South Carolina-Mountains to Midlands Board Chair Meredith Manning.
Together, Girl Scouts and the Junior League of Columbia show girls everywhere the power of sisterhood and volunteerism and foster leadership development opportunities for the girls.
For more than 100 years, Girl Scouting has helped girls develop positive values and become active, responsible leaders in their communities. With emphasis on personal growth and leadership development through service to others, Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.
