MLL Cares Program Spotlight: St. John’s Elementary School Library and Gym Fund, Jackson, MI
About four years ago now Will and I decided to implement the MLL Cares: Trusted Choice for Charities program. What is this? Our agency will donate $500 each month to a local area non-profit that is referred to us by YOU our clients. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of the charity, a quick description and contact information for the charity.
The name of the charities that are referred to us go before our MLL Charity committee that consists of a team member from our service, sales and management team and they select one recipient each month. The charities that were not selected stay on our list for the following month. The more times the same charity is referred the more weight it is given before the committee.
If you have a charity you would like to nominate email your nomination to email@example.com!
This month’s recipient is: St. John’s Elementary School Library and Gym Fund, Jackson, MI
We couldn’t be more excited for St. John’s School to receive $500 to go towards some much needed library updates as well as some new gym equipment. Both Chris Cook and Lisa Lemanski have a close connection to St. John’s as they both attended elementary school there and Chris sends his son and daughter there now.
While St. John’s is a Catholic elementary school they pride themselves on educating students of all faiths. Their goal is to provide their students “with a well-rounded, quality education in an environment where students feel good about themselves and excited about the opportunities for personal growth provided for them” (www.jacksoncatholicschools.org).
St. John’s first school opened in 1873 in Jackson and four nuns enrolled 200 students that day!
If you would like to know more about this awesome school below is the multiple ways that you can help out or donate to special projects that they are working on.
