Junior League of Nashville Members to Volunteer with 20 Nonprofit Organizations Across Nashville Through Annual Service Event
NASHVILLE, TN — Members of the Junior League of Nashville (JLN) will be volunteering at 20 nonprofits across Middle Tennessee as part of the organization’s annual fall Members in Motion event this weekend.
Members in Motion is an opportunity for all JLN members to unite and give back to the Nashville community. This League-wide day of service, held in both the fall and the spring, is an example of the major impact women who are committed to volunteerism and improving their community can make in a single day.
At last year’s fall event, more than 100 JLN volunteers supported 19 local nonprofits, including packing over 700 books for Book’em, processing 200 shoes for Soles4Souls, and providing food to seniors on five routes through St. Luke’s Community House.
On Saturday, Sept. 30, JLN volunteers will be participating in opportunities with these organizations: the Music City Run for Dyslexia, OneGenAway Mobile Food Distribution, the Edgehill Neighborhood Partnership, Youth Villages, Aventura Community School, DYMON in the Rough, Epic Girl, Friends of Warner Parks, Nashville Book Connection, Saddle Up!, Habitat for Humanity ReStore, The Branch of Nashville, Inspiritus, There With Care, The Family Center, Elijah’s Heart, Dream Streets, and the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt. Additionally, JLN volunteers will be helping with the Nashville Wine Auction Music City Harvest Party on Friday and the Fall for Cheekwood Festival on Sunday.
“It is an honor for our members to serve the Nashville community in such a variety of ways during our Members in Motion event. We are proud to work alongside nonprofits across the city on this special day, and we are grateful for the opportunity to carry forth the spirit of service that the Junior League has demonstrated in the city of Nashville for over 100 years,” said JLN President Jade Sampson.
