President's Message: Deb DeLeers


 

"Great things are brought about and burdens are lightened through the efforts of many hands anxiously engaged in a good cause." - Elder M. Russel Ballard

 

The month of August is a bustling time for many families in our community.  It is a month filled with family getaways, barbeques, golf outings, and a variety of other activities best enjoyed in the heart of our seemingly short-lived Wisconsin summer.  August is also a time of planning and preparation, as parents and children alike begin to gear up for the upcoming school year. 

 

While most families just started planning for the 2014-2015 school year, the members of our Back to School Store committee have been planning for the school year since last October.  Our committee members have spent countless hours over the last eleven months planning, shopping, fundraising, and coordinating hundreds of volunteers, all so that we could hold our 22nd Annual Back to School Store. 

 

For more than two decades, the women of Service League, together with our loyal community partners and hundreds of volunteers, have made it possible for thousands of children in our community to start the school year with everything they need to thrive and be successful.  This year, we were able to provide 1,331 elementary-aged children with a new outfit, sneakers, socks, underwear, and a new backpack filled with school supplies.  We were also able to provide 1,500 middle school-aged children with a new backpack and their necessary school supplies.  On behalf of our entire organization, I would like to extend a heartfelt THANK YOU to each of our donors and to the 568 volunteers that helped to make this event a success...together, we continue to make a difference!

 

As the President of the Service League of Green Bay, I am honored not only to participate in this amazing legacy, but also to have the opportunity to continue sharing Service League's mission and positively impact the lives of children for many years to come. 


 

Warmly,

Deb DeLeers
