This is the first year when JUMP is no longer collecting food for JUMP, as it was determined by the JUMP Board that non-food items are in greater demand by JUMP clients than food items. Donations must be collected by Sunday June 23rd!
Please take the list provided (below) to guide you regarding items we are collecting from each faith community. In order to assist JUMP’s record keeping of items CCP is donating, Bronwyn and Valerie need to tabulate the number of each item collected. PLEASE DO NOT BRING YOUR COLLECTED ITEMS DIRECTLY TO JUMP, BRING EVERYTHING TO US AT CCP. Thank you.
