Community Service

The Junior League of York has made a difference. More than $1.2 million and countless volunteer hours have been donated to the York Community. Since 1931, the York League has collaborated with the vital community agencies that support women, children, the arts, health and wellness, hunger and homelessness, the environment, parenting, literacy and beautification.
