The Holland Junior Welfare League has supported Family Hope Foundation for a number of years. Their support has been critical is helping our organization expand our reach to Holland/Zeeland families of children who have special needs. We may never know the full impact of the scholarships these children were able to receive for critical therapy. We know these women operate as an all-volunteer organization and appreciate the amount of work it takes to accomplish all the good work they do for our community. The HJWL is a wonderful tradition that has touched the lives of many, many children in our community. Keep doing the good work you do. We appreciate you!

The Holland Junior Welfare League supports the local education of at-risk students in wonderful ways. The Alternative Suspension Program of Neighbors Plus received grant money to purchase 2 chromebooks for students to use when they are out of school. The students can check their teachers' homework list and complete the work when they attend the program; the chromebooks match the technology students in the West Ottawa School District will be using in the coming years!

The Junior Welfare League of Holland put together a luncheon/auction which I attended. The event was very organized and professional. All that attended seemed to be entertained and enjoyed the event. They definitely know how to draw people in for donations. The organization and volunteers are doing some good for those in need.

The Holland Junior Welfare League has supported Nestlings with their generous grant gifts. The grant gifts have allowed Nestlings to buy diapers that are distributed free to the babies and children in need in our local community. Thousands of babies have been helped and will be happy, healthy and dry, thanks to the Holland Junior Welfare League and their continued support of Nestlings. The Holland Junior Welfare League is a wonderful supporter of our community’s children, their futures and Nestlings Diaper Bank.

The Holland Junior Welfare League has been making a huge difference in the quality of life for kids in the greater Holland area for many years. They have a grant process that involves not only written applications but personal interviews and they do a great job checking up on programs before they fund them so funds from the HJWL only go to quality programs that are well run and making a difference in the community. All funds from the League are used as direct service to others. Programs cannot use the HJWL funds for administrative costs, only direct client needs so again, the dollars donated to the HJWL go directly to impact the community.
