“Kim Fields, Kristi Kizer and Kelly Frankum have worked diligently for many years to help make Junior Auxiliary a success in our area,” a spokesman said, adding the chapter appreciates their service and for their leadership throughout the years.
Junior Auxiliary is a national non-profit organization that encourages members to render charitable services which are beneficial to the general public, with particular emphasis on children.
JA of Obion County was chartered by a group of caring, enthusiastic women in 1977 and continues to grow and thrive throughout Obion County. Volunteers work tirelessly throughout the year on a variety of projects that focus on local children and families in need of assistance.
JA of Obion County is a part of the National Association of Junior Auxiliaries (NAJA), a non-profit organization founded in 1941 with headquarters in Greenville, Miss. NAJA has more than 13,500 active, associate and life members in 101chapters in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Tennessee and Texas.
The NAJA slogan is “Care Today — Character Tomorrow” and when teamed with the current focus of the Association, Junior Auxiliary Chapters are working more than ever before to increase awareness of child health and welfare and how it affects their futures.
