Recently, one of our older passenger vans broke down. Unfortunately, the repairs are just too costly and engine failure is the prognosis.
Our vans and buses play an integral part in our programs, enabling us to:
- provide safe and reliable transportation for our JaxPAL kids from their schools to our Youth Education and Success (YES) Afterschool Program at our four community-based sites;
- transport our summer camp participants to STEM focused experience trips;
- broaden the horizons for the teens in our JaxPAL Teen Leadership Program by taking them to college tours, leadership conferences and community service projects;
- and help ensure our JaxPAL kids have access to all of our programs.
Our goal is to raise $25,000 through our #JaxPALNeedsAVan campaign to purchase a reliable van to replace the older one that is no longer in service.
