WAYS TO HELP
Johnny on the Spot (JOTS) Birthdays brings the magic of birthday parties, graduation celebrations and other special events to children living in shelters and group homes.
JOTS started in 2012 in memory of Johnny Achee who died at the age of 48 in a tragic accident. Johnny's love for his children and grandchildren lives on as JOTS delivers hope, compassion and smiles.
Currently JOTS hosts parties for children who reside in Lafourche Parish Juvenile Justice Facility 's Cornerstone located in Thibodaux, LA. and donates to MacDonell's Children's Home in Houma, LA.

JOTS currently hosts parties for residents at Lafourche Parish Juvenile Justice Facility's Cornerstone located at 2525 Veterans Blvd. in Thibodaux, LA.
JJF's Cornerstone is a temporary and long-term treatment center for abused and neglected children and can house up to 27 residents. Cornerstone's caring staff of professionals addresses the needs of the children and provides them with a safe and nurturing environment. Cornerstone residents attend: W.S. Lafargue Elementary,West Middle School, Thibodaux High School or Virtual Academy of Lafourche. Currently there are 18 residents.
For the past five 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 2018, the Leblanc brothers raised more than $600 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!
