Updated:

Neosho, MO —September 9, 2014 — The JCS Community Fund, Jarden Consumer Solutions' employee-funded charitable giving entity, donated $28,000 to four local charities in the second quarter of 2014. Committed to improving the lives of at-risk youth, women and families, the JCS Community Fund is engaged in community development where JCS employees live and work. Since its creation, the JCS Community Fund has awarded over $5 million in donations.

The JCS Community fund approved grants for the following agencies:

Community Clinic of Joplin is a local clinic providing medical and dental care to uninsured residents in the Southwest Missouri counties of Barry, Barton, Dade, Jasper, Lawrence, McDonald, Newton and Vernon. The organization received $10,000 to help Newton County residents pay for medical prescriptions.

Crosslines Churches of the Joplin Area, Inc. is a community based organization comprised of concerned volunteers working with more than 60 churches across denominational lines to meet human needs. The organization received $5,000 to support the operation of its food pantry by purchasing food to be distributed to at-risk families and individuals in the community.

Neosho Freeman Family YMCA, (Tri-State Family YMCA) is part of the worldwide YMCA organization, providing youth a healthy, values-rich environment in which to live, grow and play as well as creating a supportive, healthy environment for people seeking a healthier life and improving community wellness. The organization received $8,000 to provide scholarships to children whose parents cannot afford to cover the cost of preschool, day-camp or afterschool care. Funds will also assist with the agency's Backpack program.

LifeChoices is a medical clinic and resource center providing the community with confidential services for men and women. The organization received $5,000 to help cover a portion of the 10-day adolescent sexual health program that services Neosho and Seneca Junior High School students.
