COMMUNITY
& EVENTS

Over the past 95 years of its existence, the Junior League of Spokane has been instrumental in dozens of community improvement projects, ranging from the creation of a public radio station to prevention of child abuse. Currently, our focus is on promoting childhood literacy skills in the Spokane community, particularly among low-income kids. 

 

Some of the Junior League’s projects are small in scale – what we call “done in a day” events. Others require months or years of planning. On this page, you will find links to our current projects and events and see how the Junior League is impacting the Spokane community.

IMPACT
PROJECTS

Junior League engages in several smaller-scale impactful projects each year. These “Impact” projects typically occur September through May, and range from diaper drives to hosting dinners for homeless families. Impact projects give our members regular opportunities to connect directly with the community by providing direct support to deserving causes, while still fitting in to our busy schedules! 

 

Do you have a charity event that needs volunteers, or an idea for an Impact project? Tell us about it!
