The Junior League of Cobb-Marietta implements its Community Program in through Done in a Day Events and Done in a Meeting Projects. Each of these programs provides Junior League members with the opportunity to collaborate with local agencies to impact the lives of women and children in the Cobb-Marietta Community.
Done in a Day (DIAD)
In addition to our community projects, the JLCM collaborates with local agencies for two additional League-Wide Volunteer efforts Done in a Day and Done in a Meeting. Done in a Day (DIAD) Projects are large-scale volunteer projects which enables the League to assist community agencies which do not have a need for League volunteers on an ongoing basis, but may have a need to staff a one or two day special event or have a one-time need for extra volunteers. All DIAD volunteer requests must be for community-based, hands on opportunities.

Done in a Meeting
The goal of Done in a Meeting (DIAM) is to enhance the Junior League’s role in the community with additional “hands on” opportunities that provide members with information about partner agencies and assist those agencies with a task saving them time and money. These tasks are conducted during the JLCM Monthly Membership Meetings and can be administrative in nature. For example, last year we stuffed envelopes for the Center for Family Resources’ holiday mailing, created race packets for the March of Dimes Walk for Babies, filled tote bags for CURE Childhood Cancer’s Parent Bereavement Workshop and labeled children’s books for Communities in Schools.

For DIAD and DIAM requests, the JLCM requests advance notice of four to six weeks before an event, if possible. This will allow the League to obtain the necessary League approvals and notify the volunteers. Weekend and/or evening opportunities are preferable. The League cannot guarantee volunteers. If volunteers choose to sign up for your event, the chairperson will let you know within two weeks of the event. Thank you for considering the Junior League of Cobb-Marietta as a source for dedicated, community minded volunteers. All volunteer requests must be approved by the Community Vice President of the Junior League of Cobb-Marietta.
Any non-profit organization in the Cobb-Marietta area is eligible for application. For additional information, contact DIAD/DIAM Chairperson Linda Allen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
