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.
Tangipahoa’s Project: "Crown's Closet" This year, Junior Auxiliary of Tangipahoa will provide hygiene products, undergarments, and uniforms to school aged children throughout the community while working with school counselors and teachers to provide non-perishable meals to children who have been recognized as going without food for dinner and weekends. An emotional connections is hoped to be developed through reading to the children and spending time helping in the classroom when needed. It is with the hopes that providing these items will allow children to no longer worry about these necessities and focus on their education.
