Members in Motion (MIM) is an opportunity for all JLN members to unite and give back to the Nashville community. This league-wide day of service is an example of the impact women, who are committed to volunteerism and improving their community, can make on a community in a single day. The 2021 Fall event was held Saturday, November 6.
More than 100 JLN volunteers gathered in person across Metro Nashville to serve 13 local agencies including JLN partner agencies Book’em and Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt.
Together, JLN volunteers labeled and packed 2,000 books for Book’em, wrapped 800 diapers to serve 160 babies with Diaper Wrap, composed 95 cards for patients at Good Samaritan Health and Rehab Center (including 36 specifically thanking patients who are veterans) and much more. The MIM committee thanks everyone for their participation in making this year’s fall event a success.
Our Spring Members in Motion event is planned for Saturday, March 5, 2022!
