President’s Message

Welcome to the Junior League of Richardson! We are a diverse organization of women dedicated to improving life throughout Richardson and the North Dallas communities.

Our League began as the Richardson Service League in 1966. Over 50 years later, we continue to stand upon a strong foundation with a rich history of community service built on the motto “growth in service to the community”.  We had the pleasure of joining the Association of Junior Leagues International in 1980.

Through the decades, community need-based issues have defined the work and strategic direction of the League. As such, we have evolved as an organization as the city around us has changed.  We are proud to be tackling issues impacting women and children by working with our community partners. Our organization started the Don’t Wait to Vaccinate clinic, offering free vaccines to children in the city of Richardson and in Richardson I.S.D.  The clinic immunized more than 50,000 children through 150,000 immunizations over the course of its 25 years of operation.  Our organization maintains relationships with and offers volunteer service to our Community Partners including the Chase’s Place, Network of Community Ministries, the Richardson Adult Literacy Center, the Visiting Nurses Association/Meals on Wheels, and the Warren Center.  Additionally, during our 2019-2020 League year, we provided $5,000 in scholarship funds to deserving female Richardson ISD students and provided nearly $4,000 in grants to other Richardson area non-profit organization.

We appreciate your interest in the Junior League of Richardson.  I encourage you to learn more about us by exploring our website or by finding us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Whether you are looking for a place to make a difference in our community, seeking a community partnership, or wanting to learn more about our phenomenal projects, we welcome you!

I am both humbled and honored to serve an organization alongside some truly exceptional women. On behalf of the 2020-2021 Board of Directors, we are excited to team up with our members, donors, and community partners to act as a catalyst for lasting change!

Yours in Service,

Amber Benoit

President, 2020-2021
