Done In A Day (DIAD)


Junior League of Annapolis, Inc. (JLA) participates in monthly Done in a Day (DIAD) projects as organized by the JLA’s DIAD Committee. The Committee reviews and plans short-term projects for nonprofit organizations throughout the community of Anne Arundel County. DIAD projects are part of the JLA’s ongoing commitment to make a difference in the community and must align to the JLA’s Vision of increasing the self-sufficiency of women and children, specifically by narrowing the achievement gap.
