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.

COVID-19: What we're doing
From basic needs fulfillment like Food Drives and Diaper Drives, to fundraising and sharing of community resources, Junior Leagues are there. Use the pull-down menu below to see what Leagues are doing.
Worked with their Community Resource Center to provide basic necessary items including hygiene, clothing, baby care, protective equipment, household goods, and food to give to their city in the wake of the recent tornadoes. In combination with their Kids in the Kitchen program, created a weekly posting/blog to their instagram to share with partner agencies and other children in their area including a healthy snack, craft, and exercise.
Collaborated with FLAG (Front Line Appreciation Group) of South Orange and Maplewood to purchase meals from local restaurants to provide to front line health care workers at East Orange General Hospital in East Orange, NJ.
Joined forces with three other local organizations to launch "Pelham Cares: Neighbor to Neighbor" with the mission of purchasing meals and essentials from Pelham community businesses and delivering these meals directly to those working on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic. In their first 48 hours, they raised $30,000, allowing them to fund a project in a hard-hit part of the country for at least one month.
Donated 50 cases of hand sanitizer to Affinia Healthcare Foundation for their homeless patients.
Provided meals through the Meals for the Elderly program through the United Way of Concho Valley.
Promoted donations with San Diego Food Bank.
