Helping Hands is a way for the Junior League of Longview, Inc. to help serve in our community through hands-on work. This project came about because of the change in composition of membership over the years to a more career based membership of women, with a desire to see immediate results of volunteering! Our focus as a League is to make an impact on poverty through literacy in a variety of aspects. This project lends an opportunity to aide in poverty related organizations on a monthly basis. Our members serve meals and volunteer at organizations such as New Gate Ministries, Highway 80 Rescue Mission, Hope Haven, Meals on Wheels, and many other outreach programs. In addition, League members create fun ways to play games and lead activities for children in hopes of brightening their day!
Read as One
Read as One promotes literacy within our Longview community by working with children, adolescents, women, and the elderly. By enriching the lives of others through activities that support the love of reading, members of our community will be provided new literature and opportunities to have greater access to books. Read as One supports that collectively we are ONE League, serving in ONE community, reaching ONE individual, ONE book at a time.
