Each year the newest members of Junior Auxiliary are faced with the responsibility of designing their own service project.  The project must meet a need that is not currently being met while benefiting children in the community!




2018-2019 Filling Hearts with Love

The 2018-2019 provisional members decided to target the elderly community with their project called "Filling Hearts with Love." The group handmade 52 heart-shaped pillows and passed these out on Saturday, February 16 at the Ruston Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. The project was a complete success and could not have been accomplished without the assistance of Quilteroos for the fabric, 2CrazyGirls for the flower center pieces, and Uptown Downtown for the sandwiches. The provisional members also had personal donations that they contributed to this project.

There was dancing, food, fun, & fellowship with an exciting Hollywood theme for the wonderful children and their parents! The event was held the evening of Saturday, February 21, 2015 at Trinity United Methodist's Fellowship Hall. The provisional members went above and beyond to make this a night these children and families will never forget! HUGE THANKS for their hard work! This project was such a success and is such a need in our community, that the chapter has voted it in as a permanent project!! We are already planning for next year!

2012-2013 School Enrichment Projects
  The 2012 - 2013 members chose to use their talents at Ruston Elementary School. This school was in need of small playground equipment, and hopscotch courts/boards and Accelerated Reader Banners for a brand new program.  Going a step further the members also initiated a Pen Pal program to help children that were struggling with reading and writing.  This program finished in February with a reveal party at the school. The Pen Pals had an opportunity to introduce themselves! Throughout the remainder of the school year, these provisional members were able to paint hopscotches at several other area schools!
