JLT Hosts Operation Prom

The Junior League of Tallahassee and The Palmer Munroe Teen Center present Operation Prom!  

For many young people, prom is an important, but costly, part of the high school experience. At our annual Operation Prom, we invite area high school students to attend a boutique-style shopping event where prom dresses, shoes and accessories are provided at no cost.

Operation Prom would not be a success without support from sponsors and generous donations from the community. Dresses, shoes, and accessory donations are accepted year-round from the public.  Donations are being accepted at Drip Drop Fitness, Narcissus, Kinetix in Southwood, and JLT Headquarters during business hours (Monday and Wednesday 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. and Friday 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.) up until the event.

For more information, please email [email protected]hassee.org.

The Junior League of Tallahassee’s Little Black Dress Initiative

The Junior League of Tallahassee (JLT) is launching it’s second annual Little Black Dress Initiative (LBDI)! Between November 27 and December 1, 2017, JLT members and LBDI advocates will wear the same black dress or outfit for five consecutive days to illustrate the effects poverty can have on access to resources, confidence, and professional opportunities. The dress will represent the lack of choices those living in poverty have. By wearing a button that reads “Ask me About my Dress,” advocates invite dialogue among colleagues, friends, and strangers to raise awareness about poverty and how it affects our community.
