Boston, Mass., January 3, 2023 – JP is proud to announce we raised almost $3,000 on behalf of the “Chris Shepard Giving Back to Communities We Serve”. The 2022 recipient is the JED Foundation. JED protects emotional health and prevents suicide for our nation’s teens and young adults. JED partners with high schools and colleges (in school and online), equipping teens and young adults with skills by encouraging community awareness, understanding, and action for young adult mental health.
– 4.6+ million young adults attend schools that use JED programs to support their students’ mental health, and
– 8+ million people interact with JED programs that provide help for themselves or a loved one.
The “Chris Shepard Giving Back to Communities We Serve” assists organizations and local non-profits that are close to employees, their families, and our workplaces. To date, team members have donated nearly $24,000 to worthy organizations from Boston to Seattle and cities in between. Thank you to our incredible staff for their generosity and to JP for its dollar-for-dollar match. Together, we continue to advance JP’s mission of improving people’s lives and having a lasting impact on the communities we serve.
As we embark on 2023, we wish you all a safe, healthy, and prosperous new year!
