In the Community
JLGS is a non-profit organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism and to improving the community through effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable. For 90 years, JLGS has contributed more than $1 million dollars and countless volunteer hours to numerous worthwhile service projects in Western Massachusetts, including the founding of the Ronald McDonald House and the Springfield Day Nursery. Many of the projects organized, developed, and implemented by the League have gone on to become essential to the lives of people in our community.
Done-in-a-day (DIAD) is a series of concentrated projects that provide assistance to non-profit agencies by offering volunteers for community-based events. Junior League volunteers provide support at a variety of events including pledge drives, food bank distribution, diaper drives and holiday parties, just to name a few areas of assistance.
Please contact us if you are interested in requesting volunteers for your non-profit agency.
