On Thursday, March 8, International Women’s Day, the Junior League of Washington (JLW) will hold its Women’s Leadership Breakfast. This event will unite current and emerging female leaders from the business, political, and nonprofit worlds to celebrate women’s accomplishments, acknowledge and dismantle obstacles, and map out a future where women not only thrive but lead the way.
Just in time for the holiday season, the Junior League of Washington (JLW) will host its oldest annual fundraiser, Holiday Shops, on November 17-19 at Dock5 at Union Market. Thousands of shoppers will visit more than 70 merchants selling a variety of stylish, useful, and giftable merchandise.
Reading Is Fundamental (RIF) and the Junior League of Washington (JLW) are teaming up to support Washington DC’s homeless youth. Over the next three years, the Junior League of Washington and Reading Is Fundamental are partnering to bring books, literacy resources, and activities to children and families served by Coalition for the Homeless and Kia’s Place, kicking off on October 21, 2017. JLW awarded RIF a three-year targeted grant to provide funding for this initiative and will be volunteering alongside RIF staff at biannual family literacy events, each fall and spring. Featuring a book distribution, lunch, literacy activities, a STEAM-focused craft station and a read aloud by members of the JLW, the focus of these events is to instill the importance of literacy in the participating students. Each event will benefit two program sites serving hundreds of families living in transitional housing during this partnership.
