At the heart of the Junior League of Collin County is volunteerism. To celebrate and encourage volunteerism throughout the Collin County region, JLCC hosts the annual Excellence in Volunteer Service Awards to honor local volunteers who are changing our community for good. Held at Piazza on the Green in McKinney, community leaders served as award presenters and Dr. Cheryl “Action” Jackson of Minnie’s Food Pantry was the keynote speaker. A common theme was heard among the nominees’ stories that together, volunteers and nonprofits change lives. Not just the lives of those receiving but also of those giving. Excellence in Volunteer Service is sponsored by David & Chris Downs, SimplyConnect, Susie Cakes, Fiore x 7, Pittman Designs and Community Impact.

Hilary Jackson is a fast learner.
Before joining the Junior League of Collin County, Hilary was already a successful banking professional…but she admits that she didn’t know much about the challenges facing her community – and the nonprofit organizations addressing those challenges – even after living there for 12 years.
It’s been said that everything Mary Harriman did, she did with enthusiasm, enlisting others to join her along the way. A natural collaborator, she recognized that women had an important leadership role to play in the community. The same can be said for Senator Florence Shapiro, who for decades has rolled up her sleeves and enthusiastically sought out solutions for meeting the needs in her community.
If you were at the Shops at Legacy on August 28th you may have noticed quite a few women wandering the shops in different shades of blue. Coincidence? No! These women belong to the Junior League of Collin County and were gathering at the Angelika Movie Theater for the first general membership meeting of the 2017-2018 league year, and they started this year to the beat of the Clark High School Drumline.
When City House recently had a need arise, they didn’t hesitate to reach out and ask if the Junior League of Collin County (JLCC) could help. Being a long-time partner of JLCC, they knew that we’d be able to help – especially since this need dovetailed with some of our existing projects – JuMP, HopeWorks and My Friend’s House.
