Community Involvement

Learn about our annual special events

Throughout the year, numerous civic organizations, corporations and individuals hold fundraisers to benefit The Ada Jenkins Center. Many will hold food drives to support the Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry; others will hold a fundraiser to raise money to provide Christmas gifts to needy families.

Children will ask friends not to bring gifts to their birthday party, but to provide school supplies to LEARN Works instead. Children often sell lemonade and other goodies and surprise us with an envelope of money that they wish to donate to "help others." Often we do not hear about these events until after they occur and we are being presented with the fruits of their labor.

We are always amazed and humbled by the support we receive from our community. The ability to help give back to those in need is priceless. To provide food to a family that is hungry, clothing to those without and medical attention to the sick is what makes us fundamentally sound. Thank YOU.

A Special Thank-You to Our Community Partners
