Junior Service League sustaining member Kathy Howard opened her home for the organization’s New Member Tea to welcome and train 18 new members for the service organization.

Whitney Cox is president of JSL, a group of approximately 50 active and more than 200 sustaining members. The group is best known for their major service project, Toys for Blount County, which annually provides Christmas gifts to more than 1,400 Blount County children, ages birth to 14.

JSL works all year to raise funds for Toys for Blount County. It annually takes approximately $30,000 to buy the toys. Fund raisers include road races Master Craft Mile and Foothills Sprint, Princesses, Pirates and Pals Pancake Breakfast, Belk Charity Sale and others throughout the year.
