"Transportation Angel" Sponsor for August--
Rick Robinson

For a second year, Rick Robinson, longtime independent JUMP donor and member of the Cathedral Church of St. Paul has donated $2500 to sponsor all client transportation assistance for the month of August. 

 

Firsthand, Rick knows lack of reliable transportation can be a barrier to the working poor, low wage earners and underserved families who visit JUMP with transportation gas needs.

 

Rick shared the following, “I have volunteered at JUMP for now 21 years and today the need is greater than ever before.  So, I hope, we can continue to raise the funds necessary to help our neighbors in need!”

 

 

Grateful and excited, JUMP Board and Director ask you to share this great news and idea with family, friends and local businesses about becoming a transportation sponsor. Or, we hope you will encourage a group of family and/or friends to raise $2,500.00 to sponsor all client transportation assistance for one month” 

 

Last year, the most requested, transportation gas assistance as JUMP spent $24,725 plus an additional Bus Passes $5714 and Bikes $1257. Combined JUMP spent a needed $31,686 for transportation assistance; equaling 31% of all vouchers requested. Overall, JUMP provided 5595 client vouchers valued at $101,430. 

 

Wanda Hines; Director, “Thanks to Rick’s August transportation assistance sponsorship, JUMP can ensure the well-being and dignity of our most vulnerable neighbors with transportation.”  Adding, “Fellow Volunteers, Board, Staff and Clients are all very grateful for Ricks tireless, caring support to help underserved families get where they need to be.”

 

Focused on the Future, JUMP is asking community businesses, partners and independent donors to please support the Gas Card Project and match Rick Robinsons gift of $2,500.
