What is Junior Auxiliary?
Junior Auxiliary is a non-profit service organization for women who share a desire to improve their communities. Junior Auxiliary of Rogers~Bentonville (JARB) was established in 1969 to serve the children, youth and families of the Benton County community. Through hands-on projects focused on the most basic of needs including hunger, safety and literacy, JARB implements and supports the ideals of its motto, “Care Today… Character Tomorrow.” It is our belief that the healthy, safe child becomes a productive member of society.
While a number of Junior Auxiliary projects have a long-standing history, JARB is always looking to the community and its ever-changing needs for new projects. In our 2015-16 year, JA members donated 4,100 hours of their time to improve the lives of over 4,600 children in Benton County.
The Junior Auxiliary of Rogers-Bentonville is a member of the National Association of Junior Auxiliaries, Inc., a nonprofit corporation based in Greenville, Mississippi, with 100 chapters in 8 states and more than 15,000 members. The National Association of Junior Auxiliaries encourages its members to render charitable services that are beneficial to the general public, with particular emphasis on children.
