Done in a Day is a series of concentrated projects that provide volunteer mobilization and funding for community-based events on a short-term basis. The committee partners with other non-profit organizations to help execute community projects that have a significant impact in the Tallahassee area.

Done in a Day volunteering allows our members to see a variety of community projects with immediate impact. If you have a short-term volunteer need that ties in with the Junior League of Tallahassee’s mission, we may be an excellent match!

Guidelines for Done In a Day Projects

Criteria we look for when deciding to partner with an organization include:

  • The JLT’s mission is to improve the lives of children and families. With that in mind, DIAD will focus on partnering with organizations working to provide basic needs for children and families in our community. Past projects include school supply drives, volunteer support for large community projects and holiday events for ill children.
  • Projects cannot involve any type of direct fundraising (selling tickets, obtaining silent auction items, etc.)
  • Projects can, however, include activities related to a special event (registration, set up, event proctoring, etc.)
  • Volunteer placements are generally scheduled in 3 to 4-hour shifts over a time span of half-a-day or one-day periods.
