Updates from Johnson County Community College: ‘Tis the season for giving

JCCC is providing several ways for you to get involved and give back this holiday season.

We’re constantly reminded of just how generous our JCCC community is, especially this time of year. With your support, we can ease the burden of fulfilling basic daily needs so our students can focus on their education. Read on to learn how you can help make a difference this holiday season!

Join Student Senate for JCCC Gives 2021 through Dec. 17. Submit your gift or monetary donation today.

JCCC Gives 2021 

JCCC Student Senate is making the holidays happier for those who need it most through JCCC Gives 2021. This annual project provides assistance with holiday gifts. This year, JCCC Gives is supporting 18 individuals. Here are two ways you can help: 

  • “Adopt” someone from the Giving Tree located in COM 309 
  • Consider a monetary donation through the JCCC Foundation – donations of any amount will be accepted and used toward the purchase of gifts for the Giving Tree.

All gift donations need to be purchased by Dec. 1 and all monetary donations are due by Dec. 17

Cavalier MealSHARE Program

The Cavalier MealSHARE Program was established to address the emerging food insecurity crisis. “Dining Dollars” are loaded directly onto JCCC ID cards, which allows students to purchase food items with discretion at any Dining Services location. This program guarantees students in need have access to free, healthy food while on campus.

A donation of only $7 feeds one student for a day, $49 funds a full week and $833 will cover an entire semester. Learn more about the program and donate today!

Giving Tuesday 

Giving Tuesday – a special day dedicated to helping others – is right around the corner! On Tuesday, Nov. 30, help us stock the shelves of the Student Basic Needs Center with much-needed food, school supplies and hygiene products. 

  • $10 gift buys 2 bags of fresh fruit
  • $20 gift buys 8 boxes of oatmeal
  • $30 gift buys 6 boxes of pasta, 4 jars of pasta sauce and 10 bags of frozen vegetables
