Done-In-A-Day Projects

The Junior League of South Bend’s Done-In-A-Day (DIAD) program provides a dedicated group of Junior League members to selected projects with volunteer support to ensure completion and success of the events involved.

Junior League is focused on supporting new and on-going projects and events that positively impact our community. If your nonprofit organization is limited in achieving your goals due to lack of women power, but can be developed in a one-day project and your target is to create and/or strengthen South Bend’s sense of community involvement, your organization could benefit from partnering with us.
