Junior League supports The Cooperative Ministry

The Junior League of Columbia recently awarded The Cooperative Ministry a special Done in a Day gift of $3,055.89 to fund improvements for its clothing bank store setting, where clients shop for free clothing needed for work or school.

The gift was used to buy new merchandise signage, shopping carts, merchandising racks for shoes and accessories, and van decals to promote services and contact information. In addition to the gift, Junior League members regularly volunteered in the clothing bank through Spring 2023.
