The Junior League of Birmingham is proud to present its 100 Acts of Service Campaign. The mission of the initiative is to honor the life of Junior League Community Vice President Lee Ann Petty, who passed away Dec. 30, 2020. As Petty was dedicated to a life of service to her community and to others, the JLB is demonstrating their love for her and for Birmingham through promoting and providing outlets for community service. Inspired by an initiative being built by Petty herself, the JLB is coordinating service opportunities for not only Junior League members but the Birmingham community at large.

Taking place Saturday, March 6 from 8 to 11 a.m. at the Junior League Building (2212 20th Ave. South, Birmingham, Ala. 35223), the Diaper Bank will be collecting diapers, period products and women’s undergarments in honor of Women’s History Month.
