Hill Hill Carter Nonprofit Community Spotlight Junior League of Montgomery

Hill Hill Carter is a proud supporter of the Junior League of Montgomery, an organization committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable.

Founded in 1926, the Junior League of Montgomery is one of over 290 leagues across 4 countries representing almost 150,000 women. The Montgomery league is composed of nearly 800 members who donate approximately 20,000 hours of volunteer services annually. The JLM reaches out to all women regardless of race, religion, color or national origin.

The dramatic success of the League’s annual fundraisers has made possible a financial commitment to the Montgomery area that has totaled well over a million dollars in the last ten years alone. Proceeds raised by the Junior League of Montgomery support their work in the community through projects that improve the quality of life for families and children.
