How We Give Back
In partnership with our agents, The Janet Jones Company supports local charities and organizations across our town. The Janet Jones agents are community leaders serving on boards, commissions, and committees, chairing fundraisers, coaching little league teams and volunteering in the classroom. We invest our time and our money in Central Arkansas. We are committed to helping build an even greater community. Part of the way we do that is through The Johnson Melhorn Rainbow Fund. Here are some of the ways in which our agents give back and are involved in the community we love.
