For more than 30 years, the Winston-Salem Jaycees have partnered with a community agency to identify in-need children who could benefit from some Christmas Cheer. The event will be held on Saturday, 12/11/2021 at the Target store on University Parkway with a TBD time. Once a community agency is chosen and depending on the COVID-19 pandemic, we will arrange more specific details closer to the date. Specific details such as how necessary and personal items will be purchased (whether from wish lists or with the actual children in person shopping), the number of children we will be able to assist, and the specific spending amount for each child.

National Nurses Week is May 6 through May 12th. This year, the Winston-Salem Jaycees will be honoring the nurses at ARCA (Addiction Recovery Care Association), who work to help those that struggle with addiction. A serious issue within the triad area, the Winston-Salem Jaycees will be putting together bags of goodies through the week of May 6 through May 12, and will deliver the bags to ARCA on May 12th. Help us make great bags for these wonderful nurses by donating to this great cause through the Donate Now link on our website! Every contribution helps us to honor a well-deserving nurse.
As we charge into 2021, let’s lighten our closets! For the whole month of April, the Winston-Salem Jaycees will be collecting clothing donations for a local charitable organization known as The Shalom Project. Originally established
to assist people in the West End, this project has been able to expand over the years to help people throughout Winston-Salem. They have a clothing closet, from which people in need can shop once a month for clothing items for men, women, and children, as well as shoes and other accessories. They “shop” at no cost to them, and are able to leave with clothing for themselves and their families. The project by the Winston-Salem Jaycees will collect gently used clothing and other needed items for this charity. Items will be donated at the end of April to The Shalom Project.
