Everyone Counts for Service
The Junior League of Jackson joins the nation in providing opportunities to serve as a part of the Martin Luther King, Jr Day of Service on January 18, 2021. Dr. King recognized the power of service. He famously said, “Everyone can be great because everybody can serve.”
JLJ hosts “Everyone Counts for Service” which provides remote/virtual opportunities to support our community partners during this time of the COVID-19 pandemic. Everyone can participate in this Day of Service.
We invite you to join in with JLJ and our partners to serve and meet our community needs. Below you will find donation links to our community partners who, like the Junior League of Jackson, serve our community and meet real needs in real time.
