Arkansas Food Bank

Jason International has recently instigated a campaign called “Dress Down For A Cause Day” to raise money and collect food for the Arkansas Food Bank. Employees are allowed to wear jeans on Friday if they donate money or canned food for the drive.

The Arkansas Food Bank distributes about 34,000 pounds of food per day to 450 agencies all over the state, which in turn feeds more than 23,000 hungry Arkansans every day.

“Jason International employees have been very generous in their contributions so far, and we look forward to the opportunity to donate much more in the months to come,” says Melissa Pollock, Human Resources Manager at Jason International. “The Arkansas Food Bank is a wonderful organization that is fighting to eliminate hunger in our state, and we at Jason are proud to be involved in that effort.”

Race for the Cure and the Susan G. Komen Foundation

Jason International is proud to have sponsored a team every year for the last 5 years in the Little Rock Race for the Cure.

"I’ve participated in the race for about 10 years. Eight years ago, about ¼ mile from the finish line, I fell and fell HARD. Skinned both hands, elbows, and knees. I was amazed at how many women stopped their own race to the finish to help me up and make sure I was okay. It was just another reminder of the caring and support these racers have for all women."
-Kim Brand (Jason Team Captain, 2004-2008)

"I don't believe there are any families that haven't been touched by this terrible disease in one way or another. Breast cancer has touched my own life by way of beloved aunts, cousins and friends. Some are winning their battle, while others couldn't endure the fight. I walk for them. I walk for their families. I walk for my daughter, friends and for co-workers.
"We at Jason International join together and say NO to this awful disease. By our presence in the Walk for the Cure, we can and do make a difference. Thank You, Mr. Jacuzzi and Jason International for your support of The Jason Whirl Girls Walk for The Cure team."
-Belinda Hubbard
