Junior League members connect volunteers with groups in need

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) – The Junior League of Greenville typically makes headlines for their Little Black Dress initiative where members are asked to wear the same black outfit for five consecutive days to raise money through social media and sponsorships.

It all brings attention to and fights hunger in the Greenville area.

But you can’t pour from an empty cup.

This weekend the group has a call to action for anyone looking to log some volunteer hours under their belt.

They are hosting a volunteer expo Saturday, January 28, at the Greenville Convention Center from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
