She helps to promote events that raise money and awareness Of the need in this community.
The need in this community is that many families cannot afford equipment that s necessary for day to day life but insurance refuses to pay for IL The reward is the feeling of seeing a family get what they need simply by talking to JET on the phone filling out a short application and being given whatever they need within days. Don’t know that many volunteers in this organization face many challenges. Episcopal High School is an affluent school associated with many wealthy families. Everyone who met JET couldn’t help but love him. Even the media loved him he was constantly in the news.
Volunteering has made me realize that I m so fortunate for what I have and what an honor it is to be associated with this organization. I also asked if it was ever sad to see so many children with disabilities, She said it was so satisfying to help and that JET personally dealt with each and every family and put smiles on their faces. It is very rewarding. When asked if it was hard to do at the same times as a full-time job she smiled and said never. It is my passion. On a sad note JET Townsend passed away Tuesday June 4, 2013 after this interview. The Foundation will continue to carry on his work.
