This September, Legacy Lifts Up will partner with the Junior League of Collin County for a special shopping event. The shopping event will support JLCC’s non-profit work in Collin County.

JLCC is an organization of women committed to promoting volunteerism, developing the potential of women, and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. In the 43 years since its formation, JLCC has provided job readiness training to survivors of domestic violence, as well as life-skills training to young adults who have aged out of foster care. They also mentor first-time juvenile offenders on probation looking to turn their lives around by providing mentorship programs.
