Hello JBers!

In recognition of Global Youth Service Day, we are asking for your support in raising awareness and funds for two great organizations - Susan G. Komen and Unite for HER.

Susan G. Komen:  As many of you know, Jackie's mom, Mrs. Fratinardo, was diagnosed with breast cancer last summer.  In support of Mrs. Frat's battle, we'd like your help in selling paper links that will be used to make a chain that Mrs. Frat will carry when she walks for the Susan G. Komen Walk for a Cure this Mother's Day, May 11th. Dedicate a link to a loved one who has battled (or is battling) cancer by writing their name on the link (see links in envelope attached).  Links can be purchased for $1 each and funds raised will go towards Susan G. Komen - "Team Lori." If you'd like to join the fun, Mrs. Frat will provide "I walk for Lori" t-shirts for everyone who walks for her team.  Here is the link if you'd like to register or donate:


Unite for HER: This organization has helped hundreds of women in our local community who are struggling with breast cancer. UFH is also committed to Wellness Education and we are so excited that the founder and President of UFH, Sue Weldon, will be a guest speaker at our May 1st meeting!  This will be a JOINT PARENT AND JB SPECIAL EVENT!  Mrs. Weldon will speak about how we can all reduce our risk of cancer - not just by the foods we eat, but by the products we use too. Come hungry as there will be a sampling of delicious and nutritious food and smoothies. 

We are holding a Spare Change Drive this month to benefit Unite for HER.  Please collect your loose change during the month of April and bring it to the May 1st meeting. Your loose change has the power to change lives!

In honor of Mother's Day, there will be a surprise gift for all mothers who attend the May 1st meeting.  Unite for HER will also give each JBer who attends a free travel "toiletry bag" filled with healthy sample products.

Hope to see you all on May 1st for this special "Unite Nite" in the Fugett Middle School Cafeteria from 7-9 pm. 

- Peace
