Current Community Projects
Girls on the Run is a program works to encourage pre-teen girls to develop self-respect and healthy
lifestyles through dynamic, interactive lessons and running games, culminating in a celebratory 5k run. Junior League of Reno gave them a $30,000 grant and partnered with them to expand the program to reach more girls, especially in Title 1 schools.
Safe Embrace is dedicated to ending intimate partner violence through intervention and prevention services, as well as educational programs. Junior League of Reno created the Purple Rose Boutique, which is a place for women there to shop and obtain much needed items for the next stage of their life.
Lexie’s Gift helps donate clothing to homeless and at-risk youths. Junior League of Reno has helped their mission by providing grants, volunteers, and facilitating drives to collect items. The grants helped purchase and remodel a van and trailer that serve as a mobile closet for people in need.
