Why support the Virtual Run (or Walk) for JUMP?   Throughout the pandemic, JUMP has found innovative ways to assist our most vulnerable neighbors. JUMP is providing key assistance: funding for transportation, laundromat, food, utilities, clothing and more – in person on Thursdays and online each weekday with our FLEX Assistance Program. JUMP is staying in touch with our Quarterly Call Program, offering a compassionate point of contact, checking in about needs and the well-being of each household JUMP serves.  The result - JUMP is assisting many households in meaningful ways.  Now JUMP needs 

your help to continue this important mission!  

Thank you for assisting people in need in our community with much needed services through JUMP.  Together we can make a difference!  Please be in touch with any questions or for more information.
