Last week, the Junior League of Tuscaloosa raised $5,421 with their Little Black Dress Initiative. These funds were to help support Holt Elementary School. They noted on Facebook that it is “enough to buy monthly books for kindergarteners and 5th graders, purchase PE equipment needs, and more!”

I am quite impressed with their stance on awareness of human trafficking. The Junior League of Tuscaloosa hosted various informational sessions to help create attention to this matter. The statistics on human trafficking are alarming.

If you love working within and for the community, the Junior League of Tuscaloosa might be a great fit for you. The added bonus is increasing your skillset while meeting new people. Sounds like a winning combination to me.
