Find the Good Day

Welcome to Find the Good Day, a celebration of compassion, community, and positive change! Join us in embracing the spirit of kindness and empowerment as we commemorate this special occasion that echoes the core values of the Junior Leagues across the world.

The history of Junior Leagues dates back to the late 19th century when visionary women recognized the need for organized efforts to address pressing social issues. Inspired by a shared commitment to effect positive change, they established the first Junior League in New York City in 1901. Over the years, Junior Leagues have proliferated across the United States and beyond, becoming a transformative force for good.

At the heart of every Junior League lies a profound dedication to empowering women to become catalysts for change. Through training, mentorship, and hands-on experience, Junior League members evolve into confident leaders who drive meaningful transformations in their communities.

Find the Good Day is not just a date on the calendar; it’s a movement that reflects the timeless spirit of Junior Leagues – a legacy of kindness, empowerment, and community transformation. Together, we aim to make a difference by embracing the power of unity and positive change.

As we commemorate this extraordinary occasion, we extend an open invitation to all passionate individuals who wish to be a part of this impactful movement. Whether you’re an experienced advocate or a budding philanthropist, there’s a place for you in the Junior Leagues.

Join hands with us on Find the Good Day, and let’s create a legacy of compassion and positivity that will resonate for generations to come. Together, we can find the good in every day and make a real difference in the lives of others.

Celebrate Find the Good Day with us, and together, let’s continue the inspiring journey that began over a century ago, leaving a legacy of compassion for generations to come.

This Find the Good Day, the Junior League of Grand Rapids will be partnering with the YWCA West Central Michigan to spread awareness around Period Product Insecurity and provide essential hygiene products to the women and girls who seek their services.

What is Period Product Insecurity?

Most of us are unaware that roughly 40% of menstruating females struggle to purchase the supplies they need due to low income or accessibility. This is period poverty, or period product insecurity.

A 2021 study by U by Kotex® shows a 35% increase in period poverty since 2018, with two out five people struggling to purchase period products. Read the full news release here.

To support our efforts to combat the stigma and issues around Period Product Insecurity, the Junior League of Grand Rapids will be collecting feminine hygiene products including tampons, pads, panty liners, menstrual cups, and postpartum pads. These supplies will be given to the women and girls who seek the services of the YWCA domestic violence shelter, and those who need care from the Nurse Examiners Program for victims of sexual assault.

Donations will be received at the General Membership Meeting on September 12th, as well as additional sites still to be determined during the week of September 3-10.
