You may have seen this article about New Danville and its upscale home décor store, Jazzy Junque, teaming together to help victims of Hurricane Ida. Not only do we thrive because of volunteer assistance, but we also give back by volunteering.
Please help us continue growing our culture of volunteerism. We desperately need volunteers at Jazzy Junque, particularly as we head into the holidays. Sales from Jazzy Junque play a significant role in New Danville’s budget as well as with increasing awareness in the community about New Danville. JJ, as we call it, also employs some Wranglers.
The store has expanded a couple of times in recent years, now taking a significant space in the Outlets at Conroe shopping center on the south end.
For more information about volunteering at Jazzy Junque, please drop a note to info@JazzyJunque.org or contact Linda Deloache at 936-441-4500.
Volunteers Make it Happen!
Ivan Scheier, a legend in the field of volunteer management, said, “The broadest, and maybe the most meaningful definition of volunteering: Doing more than you have to because you want to, in a cause you consider good.” The New Danville family is humbled by the number of people who consider us a cause worthy of their time, talent, and energy.
In recent months, New Danville had volunteers from Sterling Construction come out for their second visit within six months to help with painting the large lunchroom in bold, colorful patterns. New Danville was also chosen as a Welcome Week volunteer opportunity for the students at Sam Houston State University who assisted with painting in our ECT Building shortly after returning to campus for the start of the fall semester. We are looking forward to the return of ExxonMobil volunteers who will help out in October.
Volunteers provide great relief to the human and financial resources of New Danville, but they also provide another important benefit: their engagement with our clients (Wranglers) provides a wonderful sense of normalcy and friendly socialization, which are very important in the life of adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Thank you, volunteers!
