The Leaguer

Junior League of Peoria

Our women are the force that makes change happen.

The work we do, the leadership we provide is life changing to individual members and our community. Our voice is an opportunity to own that position.

Happy Giving Tuesday - December 3

Junior League of Peoria participates in Giving Tuesday as a way to extend our ability to positively impact our community beyond the contributions of our membership. The social media messaging that marks Giving Tuesday gives us a platform to educate our family, friends, supporters and the public about our mission to increase food security for the most vulnerable: children.


JOIN US IN OUR EFFORTS TO PROVIDE NUTRITION EDUCATION AND 1,000 MEALS FOR THE PEOPLE WE SERVE. A DONATION IN ANY AMOUNT CAN MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE. JUST $10 PROVIDES A HEALTHY MEAL FOR A FAMILY OF 4.


Please share our Facebook fundraiser event to help us increase access to healthy, fresh food by 20% in 2020 for children and families living in the 61605 and 61603 zip codes.
