Day of Service: Every year, JLB partners with another local nonprofit to help them revitalize their space. 
Food Drive:  
Each spring since 1989, the JLB has partnered with area food banks and Food City to college nonperishable food items.

Kids In The Kitchen:  This initiative will empower youth to make healthy lifestyle choices.  In turn, it will help reverse childhood obesity and its associated health issues.

Little Free Library:  This national program provides a "take a book, return a book" gathering place where neighbors share their favorite literature and stories.

Read Across America:  In celebration of Dr. Seuss' birthday in March, JLB members visit area elementary schools to read Dr. Seuss books to classrooms.
Read for the Record:  Jumpstart's national campaign, Read for the Record, is one time of the year when millions of individuals come together to celebrate literacy by reading on the same date to pre-K and kindergarten classes.​

Thanksgiving Dinner Spirit of Giving:  Thanksgiving baskets are assembled for needy families in the community.

Wellmont Hospice House Meal Train: Wellmont Health System’s hospice care experts are committed to honoring life for all patients and to providing families the support they need during their important times of transition.  Each month, JLB provides a meal train.

The Junior League of Bristol TN-VA has identified literacy as an urgent need in our community.  Through volunteer hours and financial support, we CAN make a difference! We refer to Literacy as our "Impact Area" and have committed to a 3 year focus on this important cause.

Our Literacy goals are 3 fold (1) Increase access to books.  (2) Increase school readiness.  (3) Increase awareness in our community about the need to support both children's and adult's  literacy programs.
