Junior League Of Portland Activates Fourth Annual JLP CAREs Event To Revitalize Community, Raise Funds

PORTLAND, Ore., Oct. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Junior League of Portland launched its fourth annual JLP CAREs (Community Action and Revitalization Event) on October 5, 2013 from 9am to 1pm, activating 140 Junior League members at eight area nonprofits and contributing 560 volunteer hours to support Portland organizations impacting the education, safety, and health of Portland's women, children, and families.

In addition to their time at the JLP CAREs project sites, Junior League of Portland members spent the weeks prior to the event raising sponsorship donations for their work performed the day of the event.  These funds sustain Junior League's mission of promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and impacting Portland through programs that aim to address some of the most pressing needs of Portland's families.

This year, the eight Portland area organizations partnered with the Junior League are:

Peninsula Children's Learning Center, Children's Developmental Health Institute, CODA, The Shadow Project, upstARTpdx, Raphael House, Neurotherapeutic Pediatric Therapies, Inc, and The Children's Book Bank.

JLP CAREs participants cleaned toys, facilities, and books; painted playground equipment and classrooms; beautified grounds; sorted and assembled book packages; sewed bibs and smocks for children; and conducted cooking classes for making healthy, affordable meals for families in need of assistance.

The Junior League of Portland is asking community members to sponsor their participation during this year's JLP CAREs; donations are still being accepted. To learn more about JLP CAREs or more about Junior League programs such as Between the Lines and Stop Human Trafficking efforts, visit
