JLCU has signed up to be a part of the USA Today’s A Community Thrives fundraising opportunity. USA Today’s A Community Thrives is giving the opportunity for nonprofits around the country to raise funding for projects surrounding wellness, education, and art and culture. At the end of the fundraising period, if we meet our $3,000 goal, JLCU will have the opportunity to apply for a larger grant to benefit our educational programs.
March 19th through May 11th
We will be working to raise funds to support one of our 2018-2019 project partnership organizations, Wesley Food Pantry.
Wesley Food Pantry’s mission is to alleviate food insecurity in our community one family at a time by providing them with one week’s worth of nutritious groceries. In addition to this mission, they promote childhood literacy by giving each child 2 books to take home distributing over 100 children’s books every month.
The funds we are raising will be going to help with Wesley Food Pantry’s annual school supply drive.
