September 22, 2010 CJC Provides School Supplies to Children

 The CJC purchased school supplies with $700.00 worth of Target gift cards sponsored by Verizon and the National Children’s Alliance. The grant, through the National Children’s Alliance, gave the opportunity to make going back to school a little easier for CJC children who have recently been moved from their normal settings as the backpacks were filled with school supplies for them.
Amanda Hevia had a great time shopping for school supplies with $700.00 worth of Target gift cards.
