How to Give Back

As a league of 59 women, JSL has voted to cancel Wild Wild West for the 2020 year. It just didn't feel right to ask businesses and individuals for sponsorship and auction items in a time of economic struggle and uncertainty. Are we disappointed to not throw DeLand's biggest party? Yes! Are we giving up? No way!
JSL's membership has continued to meet monthly via Zoom. We are focused on DeLand's women and children with projects like Warm Jackets for Cool Kids, Shoes for You, and some new projects focused on female veterans, victims of abuse and senior citizens. We can still give to our community in 2020 thanks to the generosity of last year's Wild Wild West. Thank you to each sponsor who gave, especially to Matt Maniscalco and Harper Hill who raised a record number of funds as they competed for Grand Marshal.
We are looking forward to seeing you for Mr. JSL (a fun talent show just for the guys) this November and our Annual Birdies & Bogies Golf Tournament next March. Stay tuned.
But many DeLandites are asking how they can help JSL projects right now. Below you will find donations buttons as well as a list of our projects. If you feel inclined to give, you can be assured that each dollar stays in your community. Please contact me if you have questions.
