Did you know… Peoria is home to the 2nd most economically distressed zip code in Illinois and the 48th most economically distressed zip code in the nation?

You can help the Junior League of Peoria change this devastating fact.

The Junior League of Peoria will kick off its own Little Black Dress Initiative on Aug. 18 and 19, with a full week of events through Aug. 24, 2018.
