The Junior Welfare League of Enid is an organization of active young women interested in our community's welfare and growth.
Much of the money used to finance our operations comes from Return Engagement, our resale shop located at 123 N. Grand Ave, where we sell clothing, furniture and household items.
Another ongoing source of revenue is our cookbook sales. We have published two cookbooks: Stir Ups and Cooking By The Boot Straps. They are found on shelves across the country and are also for sale right here on this site.
Our third source of funds comes from our annual Charity Gala. It is an elegant, magical evening of delicious hors d’oeuvres, live music, live & silent auctions and great fun!
In addition to running two successful businesses, each year League members spend hundreds of hours on working committees that are an integral part of the Enid community. Recent committees, other than Return Engagement and the Cookbook Office include: CDSA Reading Program, CEW (Clothing, Education, and Welfare), Garfield County Child Advocacy Center, NODA, Newsletter and Waller Reading and Math. In addition to our working committees we select a special project to work on each year.
Since its humble beginnings during the depression, JWL has been successful in reaching out to hundreds of individuals and organizations through fundraisers and service committees. None of this would have been possible without the tireless devotions and commitment of each member. Should you decide to become a part of our organization, you too will be asked to make a commitment to our community, fulfill the obligations of membership, and join us in making the Enid area a great place to live.
