Junior League donates $29k to local charities

The Junior League of Morgan County presented the Decatur Morgan Hospital Foundation with a check for $10,000, Families and Children experiencing Separation (FACES) with a check for $15,000 and PACT with a $4,000 check.

Junior League hopes to far exceed these amounts for each pledged year by means of their annual 5K race and new upcoming fundraiser, Bacon and Brew.

The criteria for Junior League’s new partnerships were organizations that promoted women’s and children’s health and education, which both The Foundation and FACES support throughout Morgan County.

Junior League’s commitment to the Decatur Morgan Hospital Foundation with their new Signature Project will give way for the remodel and update of the Mammography Center and for the promotion of educational information and offered services to all women in the community. The funds Junior League will raise over the next five years will help provide a more comfortable and pleasant experience for women’s annual exams and mammography appointments.

In addition to the funds that Junior League will raise for the Decatur Morgan Hospital facility, Junior League has also pledged their support and involvement in the Decatur Morgan Hospital Foundation’s fundraisers including the Power of Pink Walk, the Power of Pink Luncheon and the Dragon Boat Festival.

Supporting FACES in the summer of 2014 gave this organization the opportunity to supply all 150 children in Morgan County’s foster system with backpacks and all the school supplies needed for the entire year. Unfortunately due to the cutbacks of federal funding for this organization, this goal has not been met the past few years.

Junior League helped accomplish this goal with FACES and looks forward to raising money for this deserving cause for the next three years.  Junior League also hopes to raise awareness of this program, so that FACES will be able to be better sustained by the support of the community, until the end of their commitment in 2016.

Junior League will also continue to support a long-time partnership with PACT through both a financial commitment, as well as a voluntary commitment to ensure that PACT brochures are distributed to the new mothers on the labor and delivery floor of the Decatur Morgan Hospital. Helping PACT with this distribution is particularly important, not only because of the wealth of information it provides to new mothers, but also because the statistics of mothers who receive these packets has a direct affect on the federal funding that PACT receives. PACT has had a significant influence on Morgan County and the Junior League is proud of this relationship.
