Done in a Day (DIAD)

Junior League of Duluth members reach out to our community through a variety of projects that can be completed in a single day’s time, known as Done in a Day (DIAD) projects. We work with local non-profit organizations and schools to organize and implement work that will help improve our community, especially projects that address our current focus issue: food insecurity. To request volunteer support from DIAD, please contact us at at least four weeks in advance of the event or project date.
