BENEFITING: Junior League Of Greensboro Inc
EVENT DATE: Sep 24, 2017
Little Black Dress Week: Nov. 6-10
What is Little Black Dress Initiative (LBDI)? One week = one black dress. LBDI is an initiative for Junior League of Greensboro members to wear the same black dress every day for one week to shine a spotlight on the effects of poverty on the aging members of our community. Members will wear the same black dress every day and highlight their involvement through social media posts.
How do members participate? Participants will wear the same black dress for the week of November 6-November 10 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 through November 17, 2017.
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.
