DIAD – Done In A Day

In addition to its on-going community projects and grants, the Junior League of Savannah annually undertakes six to eight projects that are done in a day, usually occurring on a Saturday or Sunday.  For each Done In A Day project, a group of six to twelve Junior league members assist local organizations through hands-on volunteer work and financial support.  Funding of up to $500 is available and must be specifically related to the project described on the applications.  Requests must include the need for volunteers as well as funding.  Requests for funding only are not accepted as Done In A Day projects.
