 As with many events in 2020, the Junior League of Collin County (JLCC) is bringing the cherished tradition of the ‘Neath the Wreath Holiday Gift Market to the community virtually. This year’s theme invites shoppers to celebrate ‘Home for the Holidays,’ where they can enjoy the tradition of shopping their favorite merchants online from the comfort of their couch. The virtual event will be held November 12-15, 2020, with additional details available at

“Over the last 25 years, Junior League of Collin County members have generously given their time and resources to this beloved fundraiser. Our committee is creating various opportunities to support the merchants and mission of the Junior League of Collin County. It is our intention to be back in 2021 to celebrate the 25th anniversary and bring our ‘Neath the Wreath family together again,” stated Amanda Konersmann, 2020-2021 President, Junior League of Collin County.

This year is more critical than ever to support the community initiatives of JLCC. With a rise in domestic violence, food insecurity, and unemployment, Collin County social services are at an all-time high demand.  JLCC continues to be active in uplifting the organizations that are supporting those vulnerable in our community. With limited opportunities to work side-by-side as volunteers, financial support and donations are crucial to sustain the level of support needed.   Proceeds from ‘Neath the Wreath enable the Junior League of Collin County (JLCC) and its 1,000+ volunteers to continue its mission of promoting volunteerism, developing the potential of women, and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. The JLCC has supported over 110 local nonprofit agencies and programs impacting Collin County, including: Collin County Council on Family Violence (CCCFV), Done in a Day projects impacting 30-40 agencies annually, My Friend’s House, Literacy Leaders, JuMP Juvenile Mentoring Program, JLCC C.A.R.E.S, R.I.S.E., and many others.
