The Junior League of Florence has spent 71 years working for the Florence community but this year we are working to Help First. Help First will be our motto for the year and we are going to work hard to make a difference in our beloved community. We are partnering with Savannah Grove Elementary School to help their students by donating school supplies, books and reading to their students.
The Junior League has partnered with the Children's Museum of the Pee Dee for the next five years to provide $25,000 towards their goal of creating a place where our children can play, learn and grow.
