On November 21st, Jasper Endows Today & Tomorrow (JETT) hosted "Will Read & Sing for Food" at the new Jasper Engines and Transmissions Power Drive facility. This was the 2nd time that WRSF has performed in this location this year. Over 125 people were on hand and had the opportunity to see JETT's presentation of 4 grants to non-profit organizations that included; Crisis Connection, Freedom Reigns, Crawford County Child Abuse Prevention Council and Metal Missions. These grants combined for over $19,000. As a bonus to the wonderful entertainment provided by Scott Saalman & company, JETT raised over $1,300 that evening to go towards 2016 grants.
JETT is a giving circle for Jasper Engine & Transmission Associates and families that focuses on pooling resources to have a greater combined impact on our communities. Our goal is to learn more about philanthropic opportunities and to support those organizations that promote smart giving. Over 500 volunteer hours were also donated by JETT members this year. Also each year, a portion of the member donations goes to the building of the JETT endowment which currently totals over $20,000. JETT was established in 2013.
You can support JETT outside of our company by donating at a WRSF, which goes to our pass through account at the Foundation.
