A Message from the Board President: 

Beth Dreibelbis

When I was a girl I sometimes complained of leg pains and my mother told me I had “growing pains”…perhaps she was right, but the real message she was giving me was that in life we change and grow and sometimes growing can  be uncomfortable – but you must grow and become strong.


JUMP has spent the last year with some  growing pains but grow we must.  We have integrated our new Managing Director position, new board formation, and new committees into our mission, worked through changes, finances, and much more.  We have kept focus on our mission – to help others, and we have succeeded in our transition to  a new JUMP.


We will be continuing to change, to grow, and most importantly to serve those who need us in our community. That will always be our focus.  With help from our faith communities, individual sponsors, and local businesses we will serve in all the ways we can.  I hope you will join us as JUMP continues to serve our neighbors in need as we work to  create a caring community.


Congratulations to the top male and female runners for the Run for JUMP - Wondu Summa and Suzy Garritty.
