Community Grants

Junior League of the Shoals invests in our community through grants to non-profit organizations. We also give back in other ways with Done in a Day projects and the Special Olympics Banquet. Examples of members volunteering their time include repair and cleaning at the Salvation Army during United Way’s Day of Action, serving at Room at the Table, and supporting Success by Six at the Witches Ride. Those are just a few of the ways that Junior League of the Shoals seeks to strengthen our communities.
