Giving Thanks For The Many Volunteers and Donors Who Support St. Joe's
In this season of Thanksgiving, we take time to thank all of the individuals, businesses and organizations who support St. Joe's throughout the year. Highlighted below are a few recent gifts that have been special for our children.
Penny Jar Update
The Penny Jar project that was started by Kanee, one of the children in our Residential program, has been a great success. Kanee started the project when he heard about the capital campaign to build new cottages for our Residential children. He wanted to help raise money for the project, so he made a jar to put at the front desk to collect pennies to donate for the cottages. In June we featured Kanee's penny jar on our website and in an email newsletter and included a link to make online donations to the jar. To date, over $400 has been raised with the jars!
Last month, Kanee was placed with a foster family, which will hopefully lead to the happy, secure, loving home that he deserves. In the days before he left, he often talked with our Development staff about continuing the penny jar project and even suggested a few of the current Residential children who could take over the project after he left. The jars will remain in place to collect donations for the cottages, and the online donation link will remain active to continue Kanee's project to raise funds for the cottages. Updates will be published from time-to-time and we will, of course let Kanee know how it's going when he calls to check-in from his new home. Click here to add "pennies" to Kanee's jar.
