Alaina DeWitt, JLGP President

Since our founding in 1921, the Junior League of Greater Princeton (JLGP) has been committed to building the power of women’s leadership and meaningful community impact through effective volunteer action, collaboration, and training.

Our members represent a diverse set of experiences and backgrounds, and what unites us is a shared commitment to community – a commitment that enables us to provide support to several community partners located throughout Mercer and Bucks counties. The efforts and talents of our members are critical to our goal of creating measurable change over the next decade in the area of food security.

When COVID-19 disrupted our world during our centennial year, the JLGP was forced to completely rethink how to serve our community. Although we could not always be together, thanks to the incredible effort put forth by League volunteers, we stretched our creativity and flexibility. Still, we met community needs during a year in which community volunteering initially seemed impossible. These challenges have taught us to be nimble and as a League we have learned adapt; this adaptability will continue to inform us how to best meet the needs of our members and our partners in the years to come.

As we begin the new League year, renewing our commitment to our members and community, we hold fast to our values and look forward to furthering our mission through effective service. We are eager to plan more of our community activities and membership gatherings in person and are ready to serve. We continue to work with our partners to identify their needs, and realize now more than ever just how much our efforts matter.

I am so grateful to each of our members for sharing their time and talents with the JLGP. It is a true honor to stand amongst such a strong group of dedicated women who have worked diligently to strengthen our community and develop our organization.

I invite you to explore our website to learn more about the JLGP’s impact and how you can support the League’s mission. Whether you choose to make a financial donation, participate in one of our community events, or express interest in joining, your support is paramount to our success. Thank you for helping us remain committed to the community.

Much Appreciation,

Alaina DeWitt
Junior League of Greater Princeton
President, 2022-2023
