April 2020– Jonathan Landing Cares has awarded $5000 to impact the lives of local children and youth during this time of social distancing. Because JL Cares values volunteering and community service, local children and youth will continue to receive the support of their Big Brother Big Sister Mentor. This shared value provides the commitment needed to give children and youth new opportunities that help them reach their brightest potential.
About Jonathan Landing Cares
Established in 1996 by residents of Jonathan’s Landing, JL Cares, a 501(c)3 charitable organization encourages and coordinates volunteer involvement by their residents and members in the Jupiter area and raises funds for non-profit agencies and schools in the local community. Each year JL Cares actively supports over 20 local agencies through volunteer work, financial gifts, and grants. Equally notable and unique among charitable organizations is that 99% of all monies collected by JL Cares go directly to the charities they support.
Each year, JL members and residents volunteer thousands of hours at local organizations, including schools, hospitals, family services, housing, learning centers, military assistance, church outreach and more. Additional core projects include Thanksgiving and Easter baskets for needy families in the Jupiter area as well as the Angel Tree project which provide gifts to local children and seniors during the holiday season.
Volunteerism is an integral part of the culture at Jonathan’s Landing Golf Club and JL Cares is very proud of its dedication to help the local community and its reputation of success.
