Staff report

GIRARD

The Junior League of Youngstown had its first meeting of the year at Junior Achievement of Mahoning Valley in Girard, which is led by Junior League sustainer Michele Merkel.

The League is in its 87th year of seeking to make a positive impact in the community and demonstrate an interest in and commitment to voluntarism. It is one of 292 leagues that are part of the Association of Junior League International.

The 2017-18 board members are Paige Rassega, president and human resources manager at Packer Thomas; Sara Wenger, secretary and community development program manager at Eastgate Regional Council of Government; Elizabeth Kijowski, treasurer, manager at PricewaterhouseCoopers, LLP; and Heather Elder, nominating chairwoman and interior designer.

Junior League members also participated in a Done In A Day project for Making Kids Count. Members donated 350 diapers for “Diaper Need Awareness Week” which ran from Sept. 25 to Oct. 1. There are five million children under age 3 who live in low-income families with a lack of a sufficient supply of diapers.
