Help JEF with fund drive

The Jamestown Education Foundation needs financial support from the community to continue providing quality programs for island students.

The annual fund-raising drive is now underway, and everyone's help is needed. The foundation is well into its third year of supporting educational programs for Jamestown students. Hundreds of local children participate in fun and interesting camps and workshops, and no student is ever turned away due to financial need.

Support is needed as JEF continues to refine existing programs and sponsor new ones. The annual budget is small, yet the need for extra curricular programming for students continues to grow. JEF volunteers and educators work tirelessly, collaborating with the Jamestown schools, the recreation department and other organizations to make learning innovative, relevant, and exciting for Jamestown students.

Anyone not already a member, should consider joining the foundation. Tax-deductible donations can be sent to JEF, 77 Narragansett Avenue, Jamestown, RI 02835. JEF appreciates everyone's support.
