Junior League of Bronxville Remains Steadfast To Service

alt

By Amy Brown, VP Communications , Junior League of Bronxville

Nov. 4, 2020: At a time when volunteer organizations are challenged by COVID-19, the Junior League of Bronxville (JLB) is determined to safely support their neighbors in need throughout their service areas of Bronxville, Eastchester, Mount Vernon, Tuckahoe and Yonkers.

One meaningful milestone was the 150th Mobile Food Pantry outreach that took place on October 23, 2020.  The JLB began its partnership with Feeding Westchester in 2014.  The Mobile Food Pantry is a traveling grocery “store” that distributes fresh and nutritious food to communities like the ones the JLB has supported over the years in Mount Vernon and Yonkers. 

As noted by the League’s Executive Vice President, Kristin Smith, who volunteered at the milestone distribution, “With an estimated 150 families at each pantry, and an average of 3 people per household, approximately 67,500 people have been fed over the course of the last six years.”  

To provide a more socially-distant volunteer opportunity, the JLB also held its second annual “Cooking for a Cause” initiative.  Thirty members prepared portions of a meal that were picked up and delivered by volunteers to the CSA Soup Kitchen in Mount Vernon.  This initiative, that fed 200 individuals in one week, was started last year to honor the loss of the League’s past President and beloved sustaining member, Erica Sevilla. 

“The JLB’s leadership is committed to our vision of ‘Mobilizing Women to Ignite and Inspire Community Change,” said President Michelle Schoulder.  “Whether we are finding new ways to make a meaningful impact, or engaging our current and prospective members through virtual meetings, I am proud to be part of this sisterhood.”  

The members of the 2020-2021 Board of Directors are:

Michelle Schoulder, President

Danielle Spring, President-Elect

Kristin Smith, Executive VP

Autumn Foley, Board Secretary

Jennifer Carella, Treasurer

Grace Gilmer, Nominating Chair

Bronxville Beautification Council

Organized in 1982 and incorporated in 1993, the Bronxville Beautification Council (BBC) is a not for profit organization administered by a Board of Directors. Its mission is to enhance and maintain the natural and man-made beauty of Bronxville Village, with emphasis on the downtown business district of Bronxville. The BBC uses the dollars raised in its annual spring solicitation letter to residents to fund the mum, tulip and summer flower plantings downtown and at traffic intersections, as well as the summer hanging baskets. Every few years the group spearheads such major endeavors as the renovation of Leonard Morange Square on the west side of the railroad tracks and the beautification of the Lawrence Hospital traffic circle, which included the addition of plants and the building of the fountain that now makes a gracious western portal to our town. The BBC also works with other civic groups to monitor the aesthetics of retail signage, the consistency of sidewalk materials, and litter and graffiti. During Beautify Bronxville Week, the BBC sponsors a poetry reading and works with Scout groups on the annual village clean-up.
