Proceeds from Holiday Shops support the League’s volunteer work in the community, our development programs that train and empower women as civic leaders, and our grants to literacy-related programs in the Washington, DC, metropolitan area. JLW’s trained volunteers serve the Washington, DC, community in a variety of ways, including at the National Book Festival, the Washington School for Girls, Calvary Women’s Services, and more than 20 other DC-area nonprofits.
