The J is truly a community center where all people are welcome. Some come to exercise, others to learn, while some people come to the JCC to make new friends and community connections. Members have opportunities to strengthen and shape their bodies, and can receive guidance on developing healthy minds and souls. While we may all live within the same community, in reality, when we walk through the JCC, we don’t know if we just greeted someone whose circumstances may be different than our own.
Are we working out near someone who must apply for dues relief in order to be a member of the JCC? Do our children play with peers who live in a homeless shelter whom consider Camp Ruach their home for the summer? Or is a lonely senior coming to our Center for the feeling of family and community? There are significant needs within our tri-county community that may not be outwardly obvious.
The JCC Annual Campaign allows us to address some of the many needs. It allows us to help others in our community. It allows us to serve as a place to turn to in times of sadness, as well as joy.
Meet Ken, the JCC’s Web & Social Media Director, and learn why he loves being a part of a community that give back.
Make a difference in the lives of our community members and donate towards the JCC’s Annual Campaign Scholarship Fund. The JCC is able to provide this financial support because generous and caring people like you help us by contributing to our annual Campaign.
Every gift, no matter the size, impacts the lives of individuals and families in our local community. No gift is too small, so please give what you can.
Double your impact! Every gift will be matched dollar for dollar up to $25,000 thanks to a generous donation from ERS Charitble Fund, Inc.
