Our History

The Junior Service League of Midwest City was founded in 1965 by a progressive group of women who believed they could make a difference in our community. For more than 50 years, The Junior Service League of Midwest City has made significant contributions through grants, donations and service. As our organization grows, we are mindful of the vision of our founding members and thus, the legacy continues.

We believe the best way to make a difference in the life of our community is by working together. Although this idea is not a new concept in towns all over the country and indeed the world, what makes the Junior Service League of Midwest City unique is the very community itself – the faces within it, the colorful mixture of talents and personalities, the businesses, the neighbors, and most importantly, the people.  In all that we do as an organization, the JSL strives to support the town and community we call home.

Today, the Junior Service League of Midwest City is composed of women from diverse backgrounds and careers. Each year, JSL members raise money for grants and scholarships though our annual Ways and Means Gala. We also organize a free community event each Spring known as Breakfast with the Easter Bunny. Additionally, each JSL member volunteers at least 5 hours a year at various community projects.

As we look to the future, we will continue contributing to meeting the needs of our community and our members in ways that are meaningful and enriching. Through the planning process and with the guidance of our Executive Board, we will set our course for the years ahead.
