The Junior League of Savannah (JLS) today announced it has canceled its annual Thrift Sale, erring on the side of caution due to health concerns amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. JLS members will instead use the time and resources originally devoted to the annual sale to provide donations to local nonprofits.

“While we are disappointed about canceling our Thrift Sale that the community loves so much, we are committed to keeping our members and supporters safe and healthy,” said Jackie Schott, JLS President. “We are delighted to now divert our resources and help our communities by providing much-needed items to various nonprofits.”

Junior League members have identified supplies that will benefit many local organizations and plan to deliver them this fall.

“Our friends, colleagues and neighbors have all been impacted and are still recovering from recent unprecedented events, and we want to help strengthen our communities with the necessities identified by our partners,” said Kimberlynn Bush, JLS Thrift Sale Chair. “We will continue to plan so next year’s sale will be the same great event the community looks forward to.”

For the past 94 years, JLS has impacted the greater Savannah community by promoting the potential of women through voluntarism and leadership development. JLS has a membership of over 600 women in the greater Savannah and South Carolina Lowcountry areas.
