COMMUNITY RESOURCES

The members of PJWC understand that life can throw you curve balls when you least expect it and you find yourself in need of resources that can help you get back on your feet.  We are a proud supporter of the charitable organizations in our local communities, some of which are listed below.  In 2022 we were able to raise significant funds through our fundraising events like Clues for a Cause.  Every Fall and Spring we hold two large fundraising events and multiple smaller ones throughout the year.  We believe that paying if forward is the very best way to make a positive impact on the lives of those in need.
