Have you ever dreamed of spending Christmas in a place where only your imagination can take you? Well, the Junior League of Odessa, Inc. is excited to make your dreams come true! We are making plans to host our 32nd annual Merry Marketplace November 6-9, 2014, and we hope that you will come out and share this special time of year with us.
Last year, your generosity enabled us to invest $140,000 in the development of a better life for families and children at risk right here in Odessa. Our focus projects aimed to address the most pressing issues in our community, including childhood hunger through Food2Kids, provide a night of respite care for SHARE, and provide furnishings for Hope House. Additionally, our Community Assistance Fund was able to provide support to Samaritan Counseling Center, Christmas in Action, Ector County Greater Works, Idessa Parks Foundation, Rope Youth, Permian Basin Mission Center, United Way of Odessa and Odessa Christian School.
This year, our membership will continue to promote volunteerism, develop the potential of women, and improve our community through the provision of two focus projects: Food2Kids and SHARE. Your sponsorship will not only ensure the success of these programs, but will make certain that the Junior League of Odessa continues to cultivate volunteers and leaders that will shape the future of our community.
Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions that you may have about Merry Marketplace or any of our projects supporting families at risk in Odessa.
Thank you for your contributions to our community and your support of the Junior League of Odessa, Inc.
Together, we can touch the Heart of Odessa.
In deepest appreciation,
Julie Marshall Julie Fincher
Junior League President Merry Marketplace Chairman
