Calling All Sustainers!
“Leave Your Legacy” Campaign
The Junior League of Scranton’s History Committee is excited to kick off our “Leave Your
Legacy” Sponsorship Campaign. The campaign is simple – we are in the process of preserving
and archiving the League’s rich history, and we know this is YOUR history. Historic preservation
and archiving are important but costly endeavors.
The League was awarded a $2,500 grant from the Scranton Area Community Foundation for
the first part of our archiving project – getting our scrapbooks digitized and purchasing other
archival items. We are now seeking sponsorships from our Sustaining Members, Active
Preferred Members, and anyone who wishes to support the project.
Whether you were a part of Santa’s World, Touch A Truck, Decorator’s Show House,
Cinderella’s Closet, or any of the League’s other countless projects and programs throughout
our history, the League’s Legacy is YOUR legacy. So please help us Leave Your Legacy!
If you have questions, please contact Gretchen Wintermantel at
