Each year, JES employees come together to support their local Boys and Girls Clubs organization by participating in events throughout the year. Among these are the Chip in Fore the Kids Golf Tournament, Hoops for a Cause, Farm Day and Rootin’ Tootin’ Chili Cookoff. Fundraising from these events help ensure summer and after school programs are available for at-risk youth.
A fifth generation Boone County resident, Jeffrey E. Smith has continuously supported the Boys and Girls Club of Columbia for over 15 years. In 2013, Mr. Smith’s generous donation to the organization allowed them to reach their capital campaign goal of $800,000, resulting in the building of the Jeffrey E. Smith Character and Leadership Center.
