Each year, Team JAS has the privilege of partnering with a local non-profit organization to bring support to our community and meet the needs of those around us. As a team, we collectively decide which organization we want to support for the year, by sending out an anonymous survey. In 2022 Team JAS elected to partner with Daniel Memorial, Inc. to “improve the lives of children and families” in Jacksonville, Florida.Daniel was originally founded by a group of church women in 1884 as an Orphanage for the multitude of children in need of help. Over the past century, this small orphanage blossomed into Daniel Memorial, Inc., a place for children and families to receive support in a multitude of ways. Daniel offers residential services, community-based services, foster care, homeless services & independent living, adoption support, and various inpatient and outpatient therapies. Daniel regularly partners with a wide range of government agencies and community support resources including the Florida Department of Children and Families, Family Support Services, the Department of Juvenile Justice, the City of Jacksonville, Kids Home Alliance, and the United Way. Daniel hosts several annual events to raise awareness, supplies, and support for their mission. Team JAS was pleased to partner with Daniel on two of their largest annual supply drives. Together, we were able to collect nearly $1000 in school supplies for their Back-to-School Supply Drive in August and several large boxes full of toys for their Holiday Toy Drive in December. Seeing our team come together for such a great cause was inspiring. It also sparked a new sense of teamwork and camaraderie within our own company, creating a generous culture that has continued to grow. We are thankful for our partnership with Daniel Memorial, Inc. and look forward to many more opportunities to serve and give back to our community in the future!
