Brownieland’s Robyn Kranz continues her work with the Junior League of Atlanta as Co-Chair of Handmade by JLA, a group of women who make items that are donated to Atlanta organizations in need. Each year, the JLA invests thousands of volunteer hours to community agencies and programs that support empowering women and children to become self-sufficient. There is always an opportunity to give back, even in a pandemic. We hope you find joy in the giving of your time or treasure this holiday season.
Robyn shares her experience:
I’ve been so lucky this crazy year to be able to give back to the community through my work with the Junior League of Atlanta. As the co-chair of the Handmade by JLA committee, we have continued to make masks for health compromised youth, blankets, scarves, hats and hygiene kits for homeless families, baby blankets for NICU babies, and provide a lot of love and support to those in need through our handmade items. Our committee has made and distributed over 1200 items this year to Atlanta nonprofits. I am so thankful that our work hasn’t stopped, and we can continue to make a difference.
