JSA is proud to support the below organizations that are fighting to make a difference. Below you will find more information and how you can get involved:

Peg Bandwidth Golf Tournament

The Mighty Oakes Heart Foundation

 

JSA is honored to support the Mighty Oakes Heart Foundation (MOHF), an organization founded in 2011 by PEG Bandwidth Co-Founder and SVP of Sales & Marketing, Greg Ortyl and his wife Becky. Its namesake, Oakes Ortyl, was the acorn from which the tree of MOHF has grown and flourished. It is his legacy that the foundation honors when it reaches out in individual, personalized, and powerful ways to assist needy families affected by the myriad challenges that congenital heart defects present. This charity golf tournament looks to help MOHF grow and assist more families in need across the country. To learn more about the Mighty Oakes Heart Foundation, visit www.mightyoakes.org.

Gift WrappingThe Heart Gallery of Broward County hosts a gift wrapping station for the 12 days leading up to Christmas at the Galleria Mall in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.  The Heart Gallery is a traveling photography exhibit of the many foster children of Broward County that are in need of a forever family.  The gallery is displayed in public places as an exhibit, with a picture and bio that describes each child’s personality and interests with the goal of encouraging the community to adopt, volunteer or donate money or goods.
JSA’s Terri Goggins and Aileen Gallagher became a part of this wonderful cause during the holiday season of 2015.The afternoon was a promising display of kindness and generosity during what sometimes seems to be a retail driven holiday season. Terri and Aileen have plans to return and volunteer again next year.  To learn more about The Heart Gallery of Broward County, please visit https://www.heartgalleryofbroward.org.

Hurricane Sandy - JSA Gives Back

Hurricane Sandy – JSA Gives Back

 

Jaymie Scotto & Associates has been giving back to the East Coast communites that have been affected by Hurricane Sandy.  One town dealing with the aftermath is New Dorp Beach, Staten Island. JSA’s Lauren Sauer offered her time and helped multiple families rip out their basements before mold could set in. The basements were completely flooded leaving only dirt and scattered sod. Most of the items in these homes were ruined, and needed to be put in the trash at the curb.  The residents of New Dorp were nothing but positive and hopeful and most feeling relieved, as some have been so overwhelmed by the destruction with no idea where to begin. Volunteers from all over were offering families and other volunteers supplies and warm meals. It was truly a community coming together.

Long Island Cares

 

JSA’s Caitlin O’HaganShannon Ashe andLauren Sauer, stepped away from their computers and desks, and took a trip out the Long Island Cares facility to volunteer their time to give back to those who have lost so much.  This season, Long Island Cares, a Feeding America member, is working hard to provide meals, food and other much-needed items to those who were affected by Superstorm Sandy.  The three of us worked in the warehouse sorting the donated food from drop boxes within the local community.  We also repackaged and labeled the assorted food in large cardboard boxes for distribution back into the community.  It was not only amazing to see how many volunteers they had working, but how much food and other items had been donated.  Everyone was extremely organized and helpful, and said they were amazed with how much the crew had accomplished in such a short amount of time. Overall, it was a great experience and we had a lot of fun working together.  We hope your volunteer experience this holiday season was as fun and meaningful as ours.

Multiple Sclerosis Society

MS – Climb to the Top

 

Each February, JSA participates in the MS Climb to the Top of the rock with 1,500 other participants, and together we climb 66 flights of stairs to help create a world free of multiple sclerosis.

 

Multiple sclerosis interrupts the flow of information between the brain and body and stops people from moving.  We believe that moving is not just something you can or can’t do, but that moving forward represents who we are.  By participating in Climb to the Top, you are connected to the potential, the hope, and the momentum of it all.  With the help of dedicated supporters like you, the National MS Society addresses the challenges of each person whose life is affected by MS and helps to move their lives forward.
