What Is Junior Auxiliary?

Care Today - Character Tomorrow

At Junior Auxiliary of DeSoto County, we are all about kids! When we were founded in 2000, a group of 75 women came together to serve and be a vital part of the community. Their goal was to focus on children by providing charitable services to help strengthen our communities family by family, relationship by relationship.

Eighteen years later, we have been able to provide thousands of volunteer hours in DeSoto County each year - last year was almost 8000 hours and counting! We were able to work with children like Javian, who was able to participate in art classes at Magnolia school where we assist each month, and Precious, who received school clothes and a warm coat for the winter.

When you support Junior Auxiliary, you are helping to fill backpacks and buy shoes, repair glasses and fill cavities. You help children learn how to keep themselves safe from predators, that they have a mentor who cares for them, and that Santa comes even to the shelters.

As we continue in our second decade of service, we invite you to partner with us in our endeavors. With your support, together we can continue to change children's lives for the better.  For more information or to inquire on how you can donate to our mission, email jaofdesotocounty@gmail.com.
