Dear Junior League of Guadalajara Friends,
I hope this newsletter finds everyone doing well. We are all experiencing a new and unexpected reality right now. Some of us are experiencing profound changes in our daily lives and some of us are experiencing tragedy and loss. In times like these, it is important that we count on each other and remember that even if we cannot see each other in person, we are not alone. Call a friend, use Skype or do a Zoom chat, reach out and stay connected.
Due to health concerns and social distancing regulations resulting from the pandemic, we are having to change the way that we do things. Junior League is known for doing hands-on work in the community, but we are having to find new ways of helping now. Our usual community programs have been temporarily suspended, but we know that the need in our community continues and is greater than ever now, so we have focused our efforts on making specific donations for greatly needed items and partnering with other groups when we can, to make more of an impact.
Please read on to see what we were up to in March and April and what we are doing in May.
Take care, stay safe, and remain hopeful.
— Terrill Martinez, President
I think it’s very important to support groups like Junior League: that are organized and have shown how well they do their job in giving back to the community. What I admire and love most about this group is that though many members are foreigners they put so much effort and enthusiasm into helping our country.
