A huge thank you goes out to all those that participated in our End of Year Appeal. Thanks to your generosity and nearly 300 donations, we surpassed our goal and raised over $52,000! We could not have done it without the amazing Salmon Family (Dan, Ellie, Scott, Karen, Lisa and Roselle) as well as our top gift givers Helayne & Paul Stoopack, Jill & Jeffrey Degen and Annmarie & Robert Uhl.

Here is a message from the Salmons:

A few weeks ago we appealed to you to support Jawonio during their annual Holiday Appeal. A very aggressive goal of $50,000 was set and the work began. Letters and emails were sent and phone calls were made. We are happy to say that you have helped make the 2015 Jawonio Holiday Appeal the most successful in their history. Your contributions and notes that came with them are very touching and heartwarming. The generosity exhibited by hundreds of people is truly amazing.

It was our pleasure to share our story with the community, our friends and relatives and to see your response. You know how important this organization has been to us and many others that it has helped since 1947. It is imperative in this time of diminishing government support that we step up and make sure we remember the words of Arthur Ashe, ” The Greatest Joy in Life Comes from Helping Others”.

Thank you for being a part of this successful campaign. Happy, healthy new year to all.

– Dan, Ellie and Scott Salmon

From our Jawonio family to yours, we extend our most heartfelt gratitude to each and every one of you.
