History

Junior Auxiliary of Madison County, then Junior Auxiliary of Madison-Ridgeland, was chartered by a group of caring, enthusiastic women in 1986 and continues to grow and thrive throughout Madison County. Volunteers work tirelessly throughout the year on a variety of projects that focus on local children and families in need of assistance.
