Giving to Communities
The Jack Jonah Foundation supports drug prevention efforts both locally and nationally. Some of the entities that are benefitted by the foundation are hospitals, rehab programs, etc.
We can't thank you all enough for your contributions to the Jack Jonah Foundation. With your support, we were able to pass forward $12,500 to the Behavioral Health Department at Mercy Health to aid in their rehabilitation programs. A true accomplishment made possible by the loving members of our JJ community!
