Focus Area

During our 2023-2024 League year, we will serve our community using our members’ diverse talents, time, and money raised through our organized fundraisers. JLO is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. All of our programs and activities are supported by League membership dues, foundation and corporate grants and other fund-development efforts.

We educate and train our members who, in turn, put their knowledge to practice in helping the Owensboro/Daviess County community.

This year our Signature Projects will include the following activities and events:

  • Little Black Dress Initiative (LBDI) – This week-long campaign harnesses the power of social media to educate people in the local community about the prevalence of sexual violence and the ways in which these traumas strip victims of the freedoms and protections that belong to them. Funds raised during this event will be donated to a women’s shelter to purchase a washer and dryer.
  • Laundry Day – League members will be at local laundromats providing quarters, laundry detergent, and dryer sheets to help out with the cost of laundry for those who cannot afford it.
