Junior Auxiliary of Arkadelphia recently selected board members for the 2017-2018 year.
Junior Auxiliary is a national non-profit organization that encourages members to render charitable services which are beneficial to the general public, with particular emphasis on children.
Junior Auxiliary of Arkadelphia was chartered by a group of caring, enthusiastic women in 1973 and continues to grow and thrive throughout Clark County. Volunteers work tirelessly throughout the year on a variety of projects such as Angel Tree and Camp Kaleidoscope that focus on local children and families in need of assistance.
Chapter President Lacy Wolfe was enthusiastic about the board and its objectives for the year at the group’s executive board training in May.
“The Junior Auxiliary of Arkadelphia's new board is excited for opportunities to work with and for the children of Clark County” said Wolfe.
With Camp Kaleidoscope scheduled for July 10-13, members are already gearing up for a busy summer.
Junior Auxiliary of Arkadelphia is a part of the National Association of Junior Auxiliaries (NAJA), a non-profit organization founded in 1941 with Headquarters in Greenville, MS. NAJA has more than 13,500 active, associate, and life members in 101 chapters in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Tennessee and Texas.
The NAJA slogan is “Care Today – Character Tomorrow” and when teamed with the current focus of the Association, Junior Auxiliary Chapters are working more than ever before to increase awareness of child health and welfare and how it affects their futures.
