About The Junior Board of Rock Island
The Junior Board of Rock Island is women joined in friendship, working together to serve children in our community, primarily by supporting our Project Nest program and the Nest newborn program in collaboration with UnityPoint at Home, by direct volunteer service and fundraising for their child-related causes.
Junior Board began in 1935. For more than 80 years, members of the organization have juggled a career and family while donating their time, efforts and personal funds to make the nonprofit organization succeed.
Members often donate their own money to help fund programs such as these, but Junior Board also hosts an annual Mardi Gras Charity Ball. February marked the organization's 76th annual event, with over 500 in attendance raising thousands of dollars.
