Let Junior League of Des Moines help with your volunteer needs!  Junior League's Done In A Day project enables the League to assist community agencies which do not have a need for League volunteers on an ongoing basis, but may have a need to staff a one or two day special event or have a one time need for extra volunteers. Learn more and complete the Done In a Day request form.

Join us for Gift Mart on Nov. 19-21 at the Community Choice Credit Union Convention Center. Tickets are $15 on Thursday and there is no admission fee on Friday or Saturday. Learn more!
