In 1992, Florence Johnson was one of the original 39 community-minded women to form a Steering Committee to introduce National Assistance League to southeastern Michigan. Her sense of commitment to the community and the welfare of those in need weighed heavily on her mind, and she jumped at the chance to help start Assistance League of Southeastern Michigan. Throughout her 24 years as a member, Florence was a longtime promoter and generous personal contributor to the Chapter's mission.
Florence was passionate about Assistance League and was committed to leave a lasting legacy to the chapter. Her bequest of $100,000 was used to start an Endowment Fund to forever continue her commitment to both Assistance League and to the future welfare of the community she cared so dearly about. We are honored to have Florence Johnson as the first Charter Member of our Legacy Society.
