THANK YOU for your donations and time!
St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church, located in Thibodaux, LA, continues to bless the children we serve at JOTS! Once again, parishioners dedicated their Lenten mission to JOTS. They donated an overwhelming amount of new towels, bedding, toiletries, socks, tshirts, and art supplies, --plus more than $1,400 to JOTS ! Everything will be split between MacDonell Children's Home in Houma, LA and Cornerstone in Thibodaux, LA. We are forever thankful for our community supporters!
A huge THANK YOU to Fr. Carl, the Knights of Columbus and his parishioners!
For the past SIX years, Colin and Alex LeBlanc of Lockport have dedicated their lemonade stand donations to JOTS. In turn, all proceeds support the foster children living at Cornerstone in Thibodaux, LA and MacDonell Children's Home in Houma, LA.
In May 2019, the LeBlanc brothers raised more than $800 through the generosity of their family and friends!! In August 2017, Colin and Alex were named Outstanding Youth Activist Award during the MacDonell Children's Home annual benefit.
THANK YOU, Alex and Colin, for helping those less fortunate! Thank you to their parents Jessica and Ben LeBlanc for raising such amazing kids!
God bless you!
Thank you to the First United Methodist Church of Thibodaux, for hosting the annual Christmas day lunch for the kids at JJF's Cornerstone, MacDonell Children's Home and Thibodaux Big Dreamers Organization! Thank you to St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church for once again donating their angel tree gifts to the children!
JOTS also appreciates our supporters who brought delicious food for the buffet and gave donations to fill Christmas stockings for each child. "Our" boys and girls were excited to receive special gifts from their Santa wish list and stockings filled to the top! God is great! Wishing everyone a wonderful New Year!
