Little Black Dress Initiative to help people facing poverty
GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - The Junior League of Greenville needs your help getting the word out about their efforts later this month.
The Little Black Dress Initiative raises awareness about and funding for those impacted by poverty in the community.
This year’s event will run from April 24-28. Members and people in the community are invited to wear the same black dress (or outfit) to bring attention to hunger and food insecurities in Pitt County.
All donations will go directly toward their efforts. Organizers are stopping by ENC at Three Thursday to discuss efforts.
Examples of past donations include a steam table and freezer for JOY Community Center, healthy snacks for Meals on Wheels and breakfast food for Community Crossroads.
Donations can be made online or mailed to our address: P.O. Box 2211 Greenville, NC 27836.
