For the second year in a row J.J. Kokesh and Son has teamed up with Epworth Children and Family Services to adopt homeless youth for Christmas. We have adopted three youth so far, two girls and a boy and our hope is to beat last year’s record of 5!
Epworth Children and Family Services is an amazing organization that helps hundreds of children each year, be they homeless, in foster care, or just in need extra support from caring adults at their school or drop in centers. I was lucky enough to work with this organization as a Case Manager before I joined my husband Joe to run J.J. Kokesh and Son. I truly believe in the work they do and the need to help support all children.
Donating, volunteering, and generally being participatory in our community is very important to us here at J.J. Kokesh and Son. I have been overwhelmed by our employee’s generosity, it was through their donations and our match that we were able to adopt 5 children last year. When we give back, not only do we help others but we gain so much in return.
Below is a list of our first three youth’s wishes. If you would like to donate with us this year, contact us at 636-391-1233 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you in advance!
Everyone at JJ Kokesh and Son wishes you a Very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
