Our Community Impact
The Junior League of Wilmington plays a major role in our community. We strive for maximum impact through the effective action of highly trained volunteers.
Whale of a Sale
Founded in 1980, the Junior League of Wilmington’s Whale of a Sale is known as "Delaware's Largest Garage Sale."
Wilmington is the largest city in Delaware and is located at the confluence of the Christina River and Brandywine Creek.
Working in the Community
The Junior League of Wilmington is proud to be working with several local nonprofit organizations on the issue of children’s health and wellness.
Because more than one-third of Delaware's children are overweight or obese, the Junior League of Wilmington is working to bring its Hands-on Education About Lifestyles That are Healthy for You (HEALTHY) Hour program to area children and their families in partnership with local nonprofit organizations, elementary schools and community centers. Through participatory instruction and other activities, children learn how they can achieve wellness by making good food choices, exercising, practicing good hygiene and developing self-esteem. More than 7,000 kids, parents and other caregivers have participated in HEALTHY Hour events since the program began in 2010.
We are an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Our purpose is exclusively educational and charitable.
