Done in a Day (DIAD)
The Junior League’s Done In A Day Committee coordinates projects in support of area non-profit organizations and social service initiatives. The Done In A Day Committee typically organizes 2-3 events each month of the league year. Done In A Day provides volunteer support for community projects or events that can be accomplished in a one-time day, evening, or weekend effort. When nonprofit agencies are limited in achieving their goals due to lack of womanpower, this program provides a small, dedicated group of JLH volunteers to help. All projects selected meet a community need in the Greater Hartford area and relate to the Junior League’s mission. In this way, the JLH is able to harness our volunteers to provide intense, short-term support for our community and other area not-for-profits.
If you would like to receive additional information or are interested in the possibility of enlisting JLH volunteers on behalf of your project or organization please contact us.
