The Russell Ladies Auxiliary White County, AR

The Russell Ladies Auxiliary has evolved into an important faction in their hometown, which has a population of just over 200 people. On a regular basis the auxiliary is either planning, or hosting an event for the residents of Russell. The auxiliary annually conducts the Russell School Reunion, organizes a block party, and presents a petting zoo for the youth. Additionally, the auxiliary spearheads a fireman appreciation, recognition event. The auxiliary also purchases t-shirts and hats for the firemen.

At the auxiliary’s 2016 Halloween event, over 500 youth participated in the festivities. During the holiday season, auxiliary members organize a series of potluck dinners.

The Russell Ladies Auxiliary promotes fellowship and good times. However, they’re also active in the realm of community assistance. The organization provides aid for families mired in a difficulty. The citizens of Russell can complete a process to receive money to help pay for their utilities. The auxiliary also assists qualified persons in paying for their child’s medical expenses.
