COVID-19 and the Dallas Community

This past year was difficult for many people across Dallas. Along with our local nonprofits, the Junior League of Dallas is still rising to meet the ongoing needs of the Dallas community impacted by COVID-19.

Many of our community partners have started or will soon return to normal operations. However, assistance is still needed. Here are some additional ways you can support the Dallas community and our partner agencies throughout this year. We will continue to update this list as we learn of new opportunities.
