100 ACTS OF SERVICE

February 21, 2021 @ 1:00 pm February 28, 2021 @ 3:00 pm

Join us in February as we demonstrate our love for Birmingham through community service. Inspired by our friend and Community Vice President Lee Ann Petty who passed away December 30, 2020, the Junior League of Birmingham is coordinating service opportunities for our members and our friends in the community. Lee Ann loved Birmingham and dedicated her life to serving others, inspiring us and so many more to follow in her footsteps in service. Look through the list below, find something that resonates with you and sign-up! More opportunities will be added throughout the month, so bookmark this page and come back for other ways to serve.

“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’” Martin Luther King, Jr.
