Dear Jackson County,

We hope you will support the 2nd Annual Hands on Jackson event scheduled for October 3, 2019

Last year the community supported this effort in a big way and we completed a total of 35 projects with the help of nearly 200 volunteers.  We expected to have an even bigger impact this year but we need your help.  Multiple projects have been submitted and we are still in need of volunteers and sponsorships which are due at the end of this week.

Hands on Jackson is organized by the Hands on Jackson Advisory Committee which is comprised of human service agencies, volunteers, and businesses. This collaboration is focused on providing assistance to neighbors in need through mobilizing community volunteer teams of all skill levels and matching them with needs.  Jobs will range from building ramps to cleaning yards, windows, and gutters.  Supplies will be provided to the teams in advance and will be purchased through sponsorships.  A kick-off breakfast sponsored by Duke Energy will start that morning at 8:00 a.m. at the Sylva First Baptist Mission and Fellowship Center before the teams report to their assigned jobs.

Hands on Jackson still needs team leaders so if you belong to a group, club, church or business you can organize a volunteer team.  A team leader meeting to discuss approved projects will be held on September 5th at the Department on Aging at 5:30 p.m. in the Heritage Room. To volunteer with a group or as an individual please complete the attached volunteer application and turn in by August 30th.  Sponsorships are also needed.  We hope you will consider making a tax-deductible contribution to our effort and join our list of sponsors.  Last year we were able to raise over $10,000 to help with unmet needs in Jackson County.

If you need additional information please let us know.  United and together we can make a difference in our community!
