JSI Store Fixtures, a Maine-based store fixture designer and manufacturer is pleased to announce that it has exceeded a significant fundraiser milestone for the Milo Kiwanis Club.
For the past 15 years, JSI has raised money for the local Kiwanis chapter through the Clayton Memorial Golf Tournament. However, due to the prevalence of COVID-19, the event was cancelled.
“To ensure the safety of our valued partners and sponsors, we thought it only right to postpone the tournament,” explained Mark Awalt, President of JSI Store Fixtures. “Unfortunately, the burden that children in poverty face doesn’t just go away with a pandemic. They need our help now more than ever.”
Awalt aimed to salvage what he could from the cancelled event, penning a letter to the sponsors. In turn, he received a response that he didn’t anticipate. Despite the tournament’s cancellation, JSI managed to raise over $30,000 for local children in need, exceeding the $250,000 milestone over the past 15 years.
“We can’t thank our donors enough for making this all possible”, exclaimed Awalt. “Through their compassion and understanding, our community gains strength.”
Proceeds are committed 100% to assisting children in the Milo region through a variety of programs.
