Neighborhood Impact

Thomas Hooker School

Partnering with the Thomas Hooker School in Bridgeport, we help foster literacy and impact students’ lives in a variety of ways including monthly Read Alouds, healthy eating programs, Star Student Receptions and beautification projects in and around the elementary school.

“Our partnership with the Junior League of Eastern Fairfield County has become embedded in the culture of Thomas Hooker School.  Volunteers read aloud to children, sponsor writing contests, book clubs and student achievement ceremonies.  All of these enriching activities have created opportunities for our students to improve their literacy skills and academic success.” – Lourdes Delgado Principal THS

Once a month Leaguers gather to prepare approximately 150 healthy meals that are donated to one of our key community partners, Operation Hope, a safe and healing shelter for homeless families.

“By preparing 150 healthy meals for our Community Kitchen and for the Food Pantry’s freezers on a monthly basis, the JLEFC helps us meet our mission of providing food to our neighbors in need. We truly appreciate their help and their dedication to those in need is impressive.” – Carla Miklos, Executive Director, Operation Hope
