SERVING OUR COMMUNITY SINCE 1953
WHO WE ARE
The Junior League of Lufkin is an organization of women committed to promoting volunteerism and to improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable.
The Little Black Dress Initiative (LBDI) is a poverty awareness social media fundraising campaign that uses the iconic LBD to raise awareness about poverty and its effects on women in society. Participants wear one black dress for five consecutive days to raise poverty awareness and illustrate the effects poverty can have on a person’s access to resources, confidence and employment opportunities.
