MacElree Harvey is excited to announce the appointment of Partner Tiffany Shrenk as the Assistant Treasurer of the Junior League of Wilmington Board of Directors. The Junior League of Wilmington is a nonprofit volunteer organization founded in 1918. For over 100 years, the women of the Junior League of Wilmington have encouraged every member to use her talents and resources to improve the social and economic conditions of others.
Today, the League has over 300 members, making it a large nonprofit organization in Delaware. Continuing to focus on improving the health, education, and welfare of those in need, the Junior League of Wilmington serves as an important volunteer resource and a catalyst for positive change through their partnerships with other nonprofit organizations in the community.
From actively supporting a woman’s right to vote, creating a Foster Care Review Board to protect children’s rights, helping to build the Woodlawn Library, and participating in numerous projects with the Ronald McDonald House, the Junior League of Wilmington has been a force in Delaware. The Junior League of Wilmington spearheaded the passage of Erin’s Law in Delaware, requiring publicly funded schools to implement age-appropriate, prevention-oriented sexual abuse education, and most recently, through its “Stand Up. Period” initiative was instrumental in the passage of House Bill 20, requiring all public and charter schools with grades 6-12 to provide free feminine hygiene products. In December 2021, the Junior League of Wilmington was awarded the Governor’s Outstanding Volunteer Service Award for its commitment to raising awareness of period equity and working to ensure programs that provide period supplies.
Inspired by her desire to give back and support the Wilmington community, Tiffany joined the Junior League of Wilmington in 2021. Her first committee experience with the League was as a member of the Annual Funds and Grants Committee where she gained valuable experience working on her first grant application and learning more about fundraising for a non-profit organization.
“I joined the Junior League of Wilmington (JLW) in early 2021. I was first introduced to the JLW years ago when I attended their Kitchen Tour, and at the end of 2020, I was looking for an organization to join that would allow me to volunteer and fundraise to make an impact in the Wilmington community. I was impressed with JLW’s longstanding history and commitment to voluntarism,” said Tiffany.
“In addition to providing community service, JLW is dedicated to supporting women develop their leadership skills. I am excited to help make an impact in my community through my JLW Board participation, and I am enjoying getting to know other women with an interest in voluntarism and community service.”
Tiffany Shrenk practices personal injury and estate and trust litigation and has taken on pro bono cases for the Office of Child Advocate representing children in the foster care system.
