Community Impact

Junior League of Owensboro members also support a variety of other community projects through “Done in a Day” events and short term funding grants. Done in a Day projects are planned for completion in just a few hours. While preparation takes time, the actual event should be accomplished with a few hours of actual volunteer time from League members.

The current Done in a Day events include:

  • Kids in the Kitchen – This event, held every other month throughout the year, offers an opportunity for children and their families to learn about making nutritious food choices and maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle.
  • Layette Community Drives and Assembly  – Needed baby items are provided in “layettes” to area Mothers identified by the home visiting programs of the Green River District Health Department.  A trained nurse goes into homes for parenting education and may use the layettes for the most needy of Mothers.

If you would like to suggest a “Done in a Day” event, please contact our Community Council Chairperson.
