Letter from the President


Valdosta Junior Service League 

Dear Community Partner of Valdosta Junior Service League,

The Valdosta Junior Service League is an organization of women comprised of over 100 active members and more than 400 associate and lifetime members who are continuously committed to promoting volunteerism, developing the potential of women, and improving our community. Through a collective force of dedicated women, the VJSL strives to touch the lives of those in our community who need our assistance and involvement in their programs and outreach.

During the 2018-2019 League year, our members donated over 5,000 volunteer hours, provided hearing and vision screenings for approximately 3,000 students in our public and private schools, began restoring the historic Converse Dalton Ferrell House, and raised thousands of dollars to support non-profit agencies throughout Lowndes County hosting our three major events: Merry Marketplace, Tossed & Found Thrift Sale, and the Spring Benefit Social. In addition to these and many other service projects, our members participated in our third annual United Way & VJSL Community Day directly impacting more than 3,350 individuals within our community. Our vision is to broaden our outreach and impact a larger segment of our community, but we need your help in this endeavor! We invite you to join us in our efforts by becoming a corporate sponsor for the 2019- 2020 League year.

This year’s events with sponsorship opportunities will include Merry Marketplace, Tossed & Found Thrift Sale, the Character Achievement Princess Party, and the Spring Benefit Social. Merry Marketplace, our holiday shopping extravaganza, will be held on November 23rd and 24th and will feature over 100 boutiques and vendors from across the Southeast. Our annual thrift sale, Tossed & Found, held February 29th, offers those in our community the opportunity to purchase gently-used merchandise at a sizable discount. The Character Achievement Event, held February 8th, has become an annual event to award young students with exceptional conduct in school the opportunity to dress up as princesses and enjoy their favorite animated “characters.” Finally, on April 24th, League members and their guests will have the opportunity to attend our annual Spring Benefit Social. All proceeds from this event will go directly to the restoration of the Converse-Dalton-Ferrell House.

As a sponsor, you have the opportunity to choose the event where you would like your business to be showcased. Specific recognition levels are available on a first come basis. The promotion of your business will also include printed name recognition in the VJSL annual publication, as well as on the VJSL website and all of our social media outlets. Your support helps make our programs possible and positively impacts the lives of people in our community. We hope that you will consider a partnership with us at any level and thank you in advance for your generosity and support.

Please see HERE for the various levels of participation and recognition that are available to our potential partners. In order to ensure that your business receives all benefits of sponsorship, all donations must be received no later than August 30, 2019. Should you have any questions, please contact Bonnie Skinner, Sponsorship Chair, at 229.292.9021 or at BONNIES66@GMAIL.COM.
