J.R. Jensen was a key participant in the recent Fall Festival hosted by Mentor Superior to celebrate its five-year anniversary! The employees of JR Jensen did an amazing job interacting with all the community members who attended the Fall Festival. It was great to see all the kids climbing up and on the big equipment. The kids enjoyed the opportunity to see the equipment up close but the bonus of getting on the various pieces was the highlight for many! Thank you, J.R. Jensen, for your support of Mentor Superior! We appreciate the special attention to all the details for the days event, including the hanging of the Mentor Superior flag and the US Flag from the cranes.
As a community-based organization, we are dedicated to providing services to those in need. While we have made changes in how services are being delivered, we are still here. We greatly appreciate local partners that are also willing and able to step up and help us in our cause. The significant donation from JR Jensen comes at a much-needed time for those seeking emergency food assistance. We deeply appreciate their generous contribution.
JR Jensen gave us an incredibly generous donation this week and we are so grateful! As the pandemic hit, our food shelf launched a delivery program to reach the most vulnerable effected, and we’ve seen the demand for this service increase exponentially over the last two weeks. With this donation, we’ll be able to sustain our food shelf delivery program as long as it’s needed, even with the increased demand for all those who need it, and add more fresh fruits and vegetables to each delivery. We are so grateful to their team for the way they care for our community.
