The Junior Women's League of Smithfield is pleased to be able to offer Community Impact Grants funded by our

signature fundraisers, Big Night Out and Touch-A-Truck!  These grants allow JWL to appropriate monies in a flexible 

manner to nonprofit community agencies that render services within Johnston County. 

Priority is given to organizations whose projects directly benefit the lives of women and children within Johnston County. 

The Community Impact Grant application period for the 2021-2022 league year has begun.
