2022 – 2023 Annual Report

Welcome to the Junior League of Long Island’s 2022 – 2023 Annual Report!

 

Final Financial Statements – The Junior League of LI Inc. – June 30, 2023 & 2022

The 2022-2023 year was our first full active year back from the pandemic and we sure were a busy bunch.  We kicked our year off with a diaper drive in conjunction with our community partner Allied Foundation and were able to secure close to 10,000 diapers for families in need.  We donated 150 Thanksgiving baskets to families on Long Island and donated backpacks for children in need.  Later in the year, we built an add-on structure and helped revitalize the playground at Belmont Childcare’s Anna House.  We brought back our most beloved program Positively Me, where we created a safe space to teach young women the importance of identifying unhealthy relationships, the importance of self -care and good nutrition.  We had a host of other projects as well and all were a success.

This year was also one of our most successful fundraising years in recent memory.  We were allowed to partner with Kendra Scott and we were hosted at Tory Burch in the Americana for Champions for Charity.  Our amazing Halloween Fundraiser featured a huge sing-along to Rappers Delight with a surprise guest appearance by Wonder Mike of the Sugar Hill Gang.  We had a retro roller-skating fundraiser as well attended by close to 100 family members and friends. Our Thrift Shop located in the heart of Roslyn reopened to its full-time schedule after being decimated by Hurricane Ida.  Redesigned and reimagined, the thrift shop is enjoying its biggest gains to date, helping us to fulfill our mission and promote programs in our communities.

Our year was so busy and there was so much more we accomplished.  My heart is full.  I want to thank my board for their hard work this year and for their unwavering support and guidance.  Our board, our members, and community partners’ dedication helped make the 2022-2023 year, one to remember.

Sincerely

Cristine Bruno

President 2022-2023
