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.
The Johnson Melhorn Rainbow Fund Gives Away $27,683.00 in 2016!
This fund was established by our company in 2008 to provide food and shelter to local families and organizations. The following groups were helped this year:
UAMS Compassion Card Program, Arkansas Hunger Alliance, Family Home of Little Rock, Meals on Wheels, Children's Protection Center, Arkansas Voices, Salvation Army, Exodus Project, Hall High Food Program, Pulaski County Humane Society, The Van, Soaring Wings, Lessons for Life, Compassion Center, Watershed Project, Arkansas Rice Depot, Jericho Way, Feed the Hungry, Immerse Arkansas, Arkansas Adopt a Vet.
Donation to "The Van"
