“Alone we can do so little. Together we can do so much.  ~ Helen Keller

Junior League of the Shoals, formerly Muscle Shoals District Service League, has been empowering women and impacting the Shoals for generations. Today we are honored to continue the rich legacy of those who have gone before us. 

The Association of Junior Leagues International is one of the oldest, largest and most effective women’s volunteer organizations in the world with almost 300 Leagues and more than 140,000 members in four countries. We are an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Our purpose is exclusively charitable and educational. 

Locally, we have a diverse membership united by a deep commitment to serve others. I am continually inspired by the ladies in our organization. Their commitment and dedication to service is astounding. The Shoals is a better place because of the determined, selfless generosity of JLS.

Each year, we host three major fundraisers. Every dollar raised from these endeavors is given back to the community in the form of grants and special projects. Over the years, we have donated hundreds of thousands back to the Shoals community.

You can support League by participating in our annual fundraisers, Apple Annie Day, Sugarplum Marketplace and Huff & Puff on the Bluff 10K run. Or, you can donate anytime through our website or by becoming a League sponsor. Contact Fund Development Chair Ann Collins Mockbee to learn more about opportunities for you or your business to support League. Ann Collins can be reached at

Thank you for helping us fulfill our mission. We are honored to serve the Shoals.

Yours in Service, 

Lorie Johnson
President, Junior League of the Shoals
