Lafayette Juniors – Celebrating more than 60 years of helping others
The Lafayette Juniors, founded in 1953 and celebrating more than 60 years of service, is a non-profit organization made up of local women who come together to raise funds and offer service in support of other non-profits that serve children, families, and seniors in need throughout Contra Costa and neighboring counties in the San Francisco area.
In the past 16 years alone, the Juniors through the dedication of members and the generosity of partners, sponsors, and participants have raised more than $550,000 for Bay Area non-profit groups and offered countless hours of service, creating yearly traditions such as sewing pillows for cancer patients, making blankets for foster children, and writing holiday cards for seniors.
The Lafayette Juniors look forward to continuing in this tradition of giving for years to come. Our 2014-15 beneficiaries are: Ruby’s Place, Boys & Girls Club of Diablo Valley, Las Trampas, Trinity Center Walnut Creek, and VESTIA (Volunteer & Emergency Services Team in Action).
