Community Development

Community events afford members numerous opportunities to serve worthy causes. Participation can involve chairing or co-chairing projects, fund-raising activities for a charity, or volunteerism at a project. Beneficiaries include hospitals, schools, charity organizations and countless other causes.

In recent years, the Jaycees have organized events such as the Buffalo Beach Ball to benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation as well as 2 Pack a Backpack Drive with the Boys and Girls Club and Channel 2 News, participation with Olmstead Parks Party for the Parks, Fall Tree Planting, golf tournament fundraiser for Youth Gold Programs, and Memorial Day Flag Planting at Forest Lawn.

These events are just waiting for an enthusiastic member to make them happen. Many of our projects have strong track records and we have veteran members who are ready and willing to assist new members in chairing projects.

There are many ways for you to get involved in community development activities, and the most rewarding is through project participation. All a project needs is an enthusiastic chairperson and excitement from the general membership to lead the way.

Your interest in helping others and your efforts to be involved will combine to make you a part of a great winning team!
