Jackson’s community service initiative is designed to educate Jackson students and their families about people in need in our community and the organizations that exist to help them. Ultimately, our goal is to raise awareness about less fortunate people and give Jackson students opportunities to make a contribution towards helping them. By partnering with charitable and philanthropic organizations on service projects, Jackson students and their families can experience how working together can make a positive difference. For more detailed information on each of the community service projects mentioned below, please check out our new Paws for a Cause Outreach Website!
