Passion with a Purpose

In January of 2017 JKJ launched our community service initiative “Passion with A Purpose”. As insurance and risk management professionals, our mission statement “Our Passion is your Protection” has become the guiding principle on how we serve our clients and protect their valued assets.

Passion with A Purpose is an extension of our mission statement. Our clients serve across business sectors and our employees become entrenched in our client’s organizations. The Passion with a Purpose initiative allows our employees to take paid time off from work to give back to our community, our client’s community or causes that they are passionate about.

In addition to our financial servitude, this program encourages time and support. Giving to others can improve and protect our mental and physical health in many ways. When we share our time and our talents, we can help solve problems, strengthen communities, connect with others and transform our own lives. The parameters of the program include partnering with co-workers and building service teams. An in-office bulletin board and social media campaigns will highlight our community involvement to inspire others to get involved in ways they may not have imagined.

Mercer Street Friends – June 22, 2022

JKJ’s June 2022 Passion With A Purpose (PWP) event took place at Mercer Street Friends, in Trenton NJ. A team of JKJ in-person volunteers cleaned and beautified Mercer Street Friends’ outdoor space and playground, including cleaning playground equipment, washing windows and planting flowers! JKJ staff also assembled 90+ hygiene kits and over 100 SHUP (Send Hunger Packing) bags along with an additional donation of over 1000 lbs. of food to be delivered to the Mercer Street Friends food pantry! Thanks to our efforts these needed supplies will go to a network of over 100 local food pantries, shelters, soup kitchens and more.  A big thanks to Doug Friel for facilitating the flower donation from JKJ client The Rhoads Garden.  Another thank you to Carrie Forte Korman for facilitating a warm intro between our PWP committee and client Mercer Street Friends. Partnership is key!

Mercer Street Friends responds to the needs of the community to build alliances that will have the most meaningful impact in addressing issues of poverty. Programs offered for the community include a food bank, preschool, parenting programs and adult education and a job readiness program.
