08 Apr Little Black Dress Initiative/April 9-13
One in five individuals in Gregg County is living below the national poverty line. 26.5% of our children live in daily poverty. This is unacceptable.
Beginning April 9- April 13, our Junior League of Longview members will wear the same black dress every day to raise awareness for those that do not have access to sufficient basic necessities such as clothing, food and shelter.
Funds raised through this campaign will go directly back into our community through one of the League’s signature programs, such as School Supply Train which provides 2,500 backpacks full of supplies to low-income children each year.
