The JJC community is gathering items to help those in our area affected by the tornadoes on Sunday, Nov. 17.Sunday’s severe weather impacted many areas in our district, particularly the Coal City, Diamond, and Braidwood communities. The Student Agriculture Association, along with other clubs and departments on campus, will lead an effort to collect items for the affected individuals—many of them students and employees—for a Tornado Victim Relief Item Donation Drive. Requested items are listed below.There are donation bins located in the A-Building, J-Building, S-Building, T-Building, and room D-1010 and the Ag Shop in room S-1001, all on the Main Campus. There are also donation bins at the Morris Campus and Romeoville Campus.

Items will be collected through next Wednesday, Nov. 27, and dropped off at the Coal City Methodist Church which is the primary distribution point for the impacted areas.
