The Jefferson’s Foundation was established in order to help and support those most vulnerable individuals living within our communities: our children. The 2018 Kids Count Data Book states that there are 14,116,000 children living in poverty in the U.S. Of that number 2,038,000 live in the communities where Jefferson’s restaurants serve.
According to the Annie E. Casey Foundation’s report, families in high-poverty neighborhoods — census tracts where poverty rates for the total population are 30% or more — face more health challenges, higher crime rates, sub-par schools and limited access to support networks and jobs.
We want to ensure that all children have the support they need to become successful adults. From baby beds to school supplies and from basic day-to-day necessities to medical needs, The Jefferson’s Foundation will help in an expedited manner.
We are currently raising funds by hosting our annual golf tournament at the Lawrence Country Club Golf Course on May 21, 2021. This year there will be two shotgun times of 8:00 am and 2:00 pm. We will also be holding another golf tournament later in the year in AL. Time and date will be determined later. Sponsorship opportunities are available for both tournaments.
We will also be hosting our annual car show on October 9, 2021. In the past, this event has been held Tonganoxie, KS, but this year it will take place in Lawrence at our Jefferson’s West location. The address is 1540 Wakarusa. Registration will begin at 10:00 am with awards at 3:00pm. Partnership opportunities are available for the car show. These range from $50.00 to $250.00. The cost of showing a car/motorcycle is $15.00 prior to the event or $20.00 the day of the event. If you are interested in participating or becoming a partner for the car show, please call 913-220-9865.
You can also donate money by using Amazon Smile for all of your online ordering and select The Jefferson’s Foundation in Lawrence, KS as your charity.
All proceeds from both events will go to help children in need.
“The funds raised will go to benefit the lives of families experiencing financial hardships due to:
