This committee helps meet the needs of one or more families in need from the community at holidays, birthdays, and other special events.
Glen Ed Pantry
The Junior Service Club contributes both financial and volunteer support to the Glen Ed Panty by assisting with canned food drives and also with the Christmas Toy Sorting Event.
This committee creates opportunities for young adults to assist in volunteering such as helping sort food at the food pantry, ringing bells for the Salvation Army during the Holidays, making blankets for needy children, and much more.
This committee researches community projects that can be done in one day. Past projects have been a blood drive, bell ringing during the holidays, and Adopt-A-Highway clean up days.
Loni Hansel Community Enrichment Award
Since 1988, the JSC has honored individuals whose time and dedication have made a difference in the lives of those in the Edwardsville and Glen Carbon communities. Originally named the Community Enrichment Award, the name was changed several years ago to honor a beloved JSC member, Loni Hansel, who unexpectedly passed away in 2011. Loni joined the JSC in 1970, and for over 40 years, her devotion made a big impact in the lives of those in our community.
JSC members deliver meals to shut-ins during the month of December through the Main Street Community Center.
Project 612 is a collection/donation program started by parent volunteers in Edwardsville School District 7. JSC members assist with gathering food that would otherwise be thrown away and transporting it to local public aid agencies.
JSC members plan and participate in events at area nursing homes.
This is a special project that the club picks to work on over a period of time. Our first signature project was the Boundless Playground in Township Park. Click here for more information.
