Community Service WeekJMBA community service week was held from Oct. 13 -18. The week-long Penny Wars competition raised $431.73 for The Children’s Home Society of Florida, a children’s advocacy agency that was severely hit by budget cuts this year. The “Bar Review” and canned food drive brought in 133 cans (as well as contributed to the Penny Wars total). The cans were donated to the Bread of the Mighty Food Bank. The food amounts to providing for about four families for a week. The week culminated in a community service day on Saturday, Oct.18, where 24 people committed 75.5 hours of hard work at the North Central Florida YMCA. Volunteers included JMBA E-board and G-board representatives, JMBA members, as well as non-JMBA members. JMBA would like to extend a big thank you to everyone that participated.
