BENEFITING: Junior League Of Greensboro Inc
EVENT DATE: Sep 24, 2017
Little Black Dress Week: March 4-8
What is Little Black Dress Initiative (LBDI)?
Little Black Dress Initiative (LBDI) is a week-long event where Junior League of Greensboro members (and friends!) wear a black, work-appropriate outfit each day, which represents the limited choices available to the aging population living in poverty. Participating members will highlight their involvement through social media posts.
How do members participate?
Participants will wear their preferred black outfit for the week of March 4-8 with a button that will read “ask me about my dress”. Members will have information to share to raise awareness of the effects of poverty on the aging population in Greensboro. Donations are welcome during and after the event through March 18, 2019.
Why should I give to the Little Black Dress Initiative?
Junior League of Greensboro members are committed to our community issue of impact: aging. Members of the Junior League volunteer in many different roles to fulfill our mission: to promote voluntarism, develop the potential of women, and improve the community through the effective action and leadership.
Currently, we are working with five community programs to address the needs of grandparents raising grandchildren, to train seniors on fraud prevention, offer food assistance to our aging neighbors who do not have enough to eat, and design activities for those in respite care. These projects are just the beginning of our multi-year commitment to aging.
