NATIONAL CHILD WELFARE PROJECT
Since Junior Auxiliary gives primary consideration to children, each Chapter is required to have at least one Child Welfare Project for which it has full administrative responsibility. The project must provide one more of the basic necessities of life such as food, clothing, shelter, and/or emotional support and there must be an ongoing relationship and commitment established between the Chapter members and the recipient.
Hammond’s Project: "Little Letters" This year, Junior Auxiliary of Hammond will adopt an upper elementary class in a local school. The chapter will assist with needs for the class including donating school supplies and filling a need if the students find themselves without necessary materials or funds to be successful. Most importantly, each chapter member will serve as a pen pal to one or two of the students and exchange letters with them monthly throughout the school year. Through these letters, the chapter hopes to provide ongoing support for the children as well as help strengthen their communication skills through the written word.
