The Junior League of Shreveport-Bossier began its partnership with Sheriff’s Safety Town in 2008. In celebration of its 75th anniversary of serving the community, the Junior League of Shreveport-Bossier donated $75,000 to assist in the construction of this unique educational facility. The funds were used to construct an outdoor pavilion at the heart of the Safety Town neighborhood.
