About the Wellesley Hills Junior Women’s Club
The Wellesley Hills Junior Women’s Club is a group of women who work to make a meaningful difference in our community by raising money and giving time to help those in need. We create dynamic fundraising events that celebrate our community. With the money raised, we give scholarships to deserving high school students and fund programs that make a positive impact in the community, such as an anti-bullying campaign for middle school students. We give our time to help children with special needs, the elderly and families in crisis. We also volunteer with organizations that help address some of the biggest challenges facing our society: mental health, hunger, access to education, poverty and domestic violence. And along the way, lasting friendships are created while we work side-by-side. In a world where problems are complex and the news is often bad, we’re making a measurable difference where we can — right here at home.
