JCC Happenings… June Update


Greetings to JCC family and friends,

Summer’s coming…..weeds are growing!  We had a great morning of church yard cleaning on May 18th with a good group from SABF joining a core of folks from JCC to cut back weeds and limbs and make the lawn look good. Thanks everyone!

And although this report is a bit late, here is what Sue shared with us in the bulletin a few weeks ago about our most recent diaper drive for the food bank which took place on Easter Sunday:

Wow – praise God!!  Our one-day Easter Diaper Drive brought in a total of 2, 274 diapers!!  This is an amazing amount of diapers collected for the recipients at St. Mary’s Food Bank and the staff there are very appreciative of your generosity!  Thank you! Thank you!!  Last year we collected approximately 1,300 diapers so this year we easily surpassed that number.  We can make this an annual event each Easter, but donations are also welcome throughout the year. (Sue Hanson)  Below is a photo of Sue and Gene delivering the diapers to the food bank.
