Name of creator
The Junior League of Halifax, Inc. was incorporated in 1933. It is a member of the Association of Junior Leagues International and is an organization comprised of women who are dedicated to improving their communities through volunteer efforts. Community needs are identified and programs are developed to address those needs.
Many of the projects undertaken by the Junior League of Halifax are focused on children, senior citizens, the disabled, and women. These projects included radio broadcasts, public education publications, establishing lending libraries (Victoria General, Halifax Children's), and promoting safety projects (Buckle Up Baby, civil defence during the Cold War) and local cultural endeavours (Black Heritage Trail, theatre and the symphony). To support their activities the Junior League were active fundraisers and relied on initiatives such as the Bargain Box, the annual Follies show, and the Homes for the Holidays tours to raise money.
Some organizations that have partnered with Junior League of Halifax are Kids Help Phone, the Home of Guardian Angels, Dalhousie University Public Health Clinic, the Red Cross, Victoria General Hospital.
Records were donated by Catherine Cottreau-Robins, Chair of the Archives Committee of the Junior League of Halifax, Inc. in August 2008.
