Past Projects

2015-2016

Weekend Backpack Program

In partnership with the Food Bank of East Alabama, JLLC is continuing to expand the Weekend Backpack Program.  This program is a partnership between multiple community organizations that seek to offer ready-to-eat meals and snacks for elementary and middle school children to take home on the weekends.  Frequently, these children would otherwise have nothing to eat during the weekend. Participating children are selected based on need.  The projected number of children is 240 with the expectation of additional children being added throughout the year.

JLLC “Done- in- A Day” Program

JLLC also partners with local agencies to conduct short term projects throughout the year.  Done-in-a-Day projects may cover anything that a community agency may need – from stuffing envelopes to reading to children enrolled in the program –that can be accomplished in one day.  These projects allow our members to earn volunteer hours and to build goodwill in Lee County.  JLLC also offers the “Opportunity Knocks” Program which provides small grants to agencies who need emergency funds to support programs for children.

 

I Am My Brother’s Keeper (IAMBK, Inc.) Biggest Winner

Funds support a program designed to help low-income youth and young adults of Lee Country increase physical activity, consumption of healthy foods, nutritional knowledge, attitudes, behaviors, and self-esteem.  During participation in the project, participants will attend group sessions bi-weekly that incorporate health education, nutrition, and exercise. They will participate in various sporting events and form parent/child teams that will actively engage in healthy meal preparation. The program seeks to create a foundation where children and their families can take charge of their health and wellness by encouraging physical activity, healthy food choices, and by providing educational opportunities.  The projected number of children impacted is 50.

Keep Opelika Beautiful “Opelika Grows”

Funds  support expansion of a program that will offer garden-based learning opportunities for K-8 students and their families. These students partner with Auburn University students to learn how to plant, grow and harvest donations to the Community Market. Programming in schools is offered each semester for 12 weeks. Funding supports the establishment of gardens at West Forest and Morris Avenue Intermediate Schools, as well as a community garden park at the Cultural Center.  Extending the program will provide every Opelika City School student, grades 3-8, along with up to 80 community families and/or organizations, access to school gardens and related programming.  Ideally, local hunger can be minimized and those involved develop a life-long appreciation for civic involvement. The projected number of children impacted is 2000+ through school activities and hundreds of children through produce donated to Community Market.  We anticipate a contribution of 10-15 volunteers assisting the program.
