JPC Days of Celebration - Aug 24, 25 & 26, 2020
Thursday, August 27th, 2020
In Celebration of Johnson Park Center (JPC) serving the Johnson Park-Cornhill community for 25 years, we planned to give 1,500 JPC 25th Year Celebration sports bags filled with school supplies to students ages four years old and up. Based on the feedback JPC was receiving, we added 500 more JPC 25th Year Celebration sports bags filled with school supplies. On Monday, August 24th, by 5 pm, all sports bags allocated for Monday were given out. JPC staff and volunteers went through all of its storage areas and found school supplies to bag and give to the students.
On Tuesday, August 25th, JPC went shopping and purchased school supplies to make more bags filled with school supplies. On Wednesday, JPC went shopping and bought more school supplies to make more bags filled with school supplies. JPC made more bags so students could receive school supplies.
JPC is so very thankful to all the sponsors that made it possible to provide school supplies to students. JPC gave 3,500 bags of school supplies bags and a lot of food to the community. The last three days were very challenging, with a lot of physical work in near-heatwave weather. We had excellent volunteers and JPC Staff with the determination and purpose to serve the community! Thank you so very much. The best is yet to come. JPC 25th Year of Christmas Days of Celebration in December 2020!
