About Lafayette Juniors

The Juniors were founded in 1953 by Lafayette resident Betsey Young and for the 65 years since this founding have continued in spirit of helping people who need it most. The dedication of our Junior members and generosity of our local partners, sponsors, and supporters have helped the Juniors raise more than $700,000 in the last 18 years alone for more than 45 non-profit groups.

Each year the Juniors continue to put on fun events like Rummage in the Fall and Kitchen Tour in the Spring for the sole purpose of raising money for our beneficiaries and throughout the year also offer countless hours of service, including sewing pillows for hospital patients, making blankets for foster children as well as providing them holiday gifts and school supplies, and writing cards for seniors.
