Junior League of Fresno – 1950s

The 1950s saw an emphasis on health and hospital-related projects. Junior League of Fresno established a Dental Health Council that continued for nineteen years. While area hospitals benefited from donations of equipment, Valley Children’s Hospital was the major focus with such items as an electro-cardiac machine, cardiac pacemaker, oximeter, and many monetary donations to its building fund. The Fresno League also participated in the formation of the Fresno Junior Museum (later to become the Discovery Center) in 1955.
