Our Signature Project: The JSLB Prom Boutique
The JSLB Signature Service Project will be a defining way for JSLB members to give to young women in our community. We plan to host a prom boutique, where female middle and high school students who cannot afford to purchase a new prom dress can shop for a dream dress for free! [learn more]

Terrific Tuesdays supporting the Child Abuse Prevention Association (CAPA):
The Child Abuse Prevention Association (CAPA) is a local nonprofit who provides prevention and intervention programs targeted to break the cycle of child abuse and neglect. Members placed on this project take turns volunteering on Tuesday evenings in the CAPA shelter and spend quality time with children who have been removed from their homes because of sexual, physical abuse and/or neglect. They engage in activities that promote character development, fun games that provide a much needed distraction and creative arts and crafts projects.
Supporting CODA Through Raising Wish List Donations:
CODA provides professional supportive services to victims of intimate partner abuse and their children in Beaufort, Colleton, Hampton and Jasper counties in South Carolina. Committed to the belief that safety from violence and freedom from fear are universal rights, CODA conducts community education programs to confront the societal norms that condone abusive behavior. JSLB members champion a league-wide fall drive to raise much-needed baby items for shelter and pampering gifts for the mothers, as well as, a public spring drive to make some of the shelter’s wish list come true!
Raising Blood Donations for the Lowcountry:
JSLB will hosts an annual blood drive to raise awareness and blood donations throughout the community. One donation can save up to three lives and The Blood Alliance supplies all of the blood for our local area. JSLB members will be responsible for coordinate the event, recruit donors and offer encouragement as people donate.
