The Junior League of Indian River (JLIR) is constantly striving to better serve our community especially during times of crisis. To immediately assist those in the community affected by Coronavirus, JLIR has awarded $10,000 to United Against Poverty which is on the front lines of helping local community members in crisis.
United Against Poverty is a local nonprofit organization whose mission is to serve those in poverty. They do this by providing crisis care, case management, food assistance, employment training, and much more.
“As our world is being turned upside down, our commitment to bettering our community has not changed,” said Chelsea Miller, president of JLIR. “It is our hope that in this time of difficulty, we can come together to support one another and lend a helping hand with this gift.”
