The Junior League of El Paso, Inc. is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable.
The Bridging the Gap project continues into it’s second year while JLEP works to launch the application and website into full production. Our goal is to provide immediate local and national resources for adolescents, aged 13-18, who are in a mental health crisis or who may be concerned about a classmate, family member or friend.
JLEP will work to set-up and successfully run a mobile school food pantry to be turned over to the school at the end of the 2021 school year. Committee members will work to develop a selection process and criteria for selecting a school from a list of waiting schools. JLEP members will be trained in the creation and set-up of a mobile food pantry at the selected site. JLEP members will work to build a volunteer base and schedule weekly distributions of food to pre-registered students and their families.
Ending the Silence will continue to partner with the National Alliance on Mental illness (NAMI) in an ongoing effort to sustain the revolutionary mental health program in El Paso. The program will continue to focus specifically on the high school age group to target the stigma of mental health issues by expanding the program from 5 to 8 schools where local high school aged youth attend a 50 minute mental health awareness program.
This is a new project for 2020-2021 but highlights the Junior League of El Paso’s commitment to support the Ronald McDonald House as it did when the Ronald McDonald House was originally founded in El Paso, Texas.
