The Junior Women's Association of Pitt County is entering its second year after donating thousands of dollars to local charities and completing more than 2,400 hours of community service.
The group, known as JWA, recently presented $5,500 to the Habitat for Humanity of Pitt County. The money will be applied to the Green Street Home Rehabilitation Project.
“Habitat is very grateful for JWA’s financial gift, helping Habitat complete the funding on its rehabilitation efforts for a home on Greene Street in the west Greenville neighborhood,” said Beth Everett, Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity of Pitt County. “Most importantly, Habitat is extremely grateful for the many volunteer hours the many JWA women invested in Habitat building homes, communities and hope.”
In addition to Habitat for Humanity, JWA provided volunteerism and donations to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Pitt County, Ronald McDonald House of Eastern North Carolina and the Food Bank of Eastern North Carolina.
