Basic Needs - Food Drives
Junior Leagues across the Association are taking many steps to support and encourage our members, donors, communities and organizational partners as we adapt to the changes we currently face. These inspiring stories are playing out across our Junior League Movement. We hope to capture the evolution of Leagues reacting to this unfolding crisis.
Hard work, generosity, and the spirit of voluntarism are needed now more than ever as we navigate these unprecedented circumstances and the uncharted waters ahead. Together, we are #JLStrong.
