    Name: Junior League of Birmingham's 100 Acts of Service
    Date: February 1, 2021 - February 28, 2021
    Event Description:
    The Junior League of Birmingham is proud to present its 100 Acts of Service Campaign throughout the month of February. The mission of the initiative is to honor the life of Junior League Community Vice President Lee Ann Petty, who passed away Dec. 30, 2020. As Petty was dedicated to a life of service to her community and to others, the JLB is demonstrating their love for her and for Birmingham through promoting and providing outlets for community service. Inspired by an initiative being built by Petty herself, the JLB is coordinating service opportunities for not only Junior League members but the Birmingham community at large. The service areas encompass the JLB’s four impact areas: Education & Culture, Economic Security & Financial Stability, Health & Wellness and Safety & Crisis. Current service opportunities for the 100 Acts of Service initiative can be found below and will be updated as new opportunities are added: Tackle Food Insecurity with JLB and Youth Towers: Throughout February, the JLB is collecting pantry goods (small bags of sugar and flour, cooking oil, peanut butter), individual snacks (crackers, breakfast bars, fruit bars), dry goods (pasta, noodles), and snap-top non-perishable foods (soup, canned meats, fruit, vegetables) for Youth Towers, a local non-profit supporting homeless and high risk youth ages 19-26. The link for the Amazon wish list can be found here. Help Fight COVID-19 with JLB and UAB: The JLB is organizing volunteers to help at the community vaccination sites in Jefferson County.
