DAY ONE of the Little Black Dress Initiative … so that ONE DAY there will be fewer families impacted by poverty in Topeka.
Census data indicates approximately ONE in Six Topekans live in poverty and you can support the Junior League of Topeka and their community initiatives aimed at improving this statistic by donating now!
Did you look in your closet full of clothes this morning and think I HAVE NOTHING TO WEAR!?
What if your closet only had one thing in it? Or what if your “closet” was a bag you lived out of at a hotel or homeless shelter?
Next week is our 3rd annual Little Black Dress Initiative. Junior League of Topeka members and community advocates will be wearing the same black dress every day Monday through Friday to raise awareness about the challenges facing those who live in poverty in the Topeka area and to raise money for Junior League of Topeka programs that provide food, health, and other services to the most vulnerable among us.
