What a day it was at the JJ’s List Community Impact Showcase on Oct 28!

It was really great to see so many of you stop by to chat with our team and learn about all the work we’re doing around the Voluntern Program, the Disability Awareness Players, the Safe and Productive Internet Life & Literacy Skills (SPILLS) Curriculum and a whole lot more to bring businesses and people with disabilities together. Hope you enjoyed meeting everyone and will help to spread the word about the work we’re doing!

Thank you so much for your support thus far. You help keep us going! We can’t wait to share more good news with you down the line.

Here’re some great pictures from the day, taken by the lovely Jennifer Frankfurter of Photography with Heart:
