From bake sales to Comedy Nights, we are always brainstorming and planning community events to raise money to give right back to the community!
Adopt-a-Family & Feed-A-Family Campaign
Many families in need are supported during the holiday season. The makings for full Thanksgiving dinners are purchased and delivered to local families. Wish Lists of families in need are fulfilled by donations from local businesses and other organizations (groups, troops & individuals) at Christmas time. JWC also helps families in need throughout the year with fuel assistance, grocery gift certificates, and the like, depending on the family’s situation.
