South Windsor Jaycees Foundation DBA Wapping Fair
The South Windsor Jaycees Foundation, Inc. offers a tremendous impact to the community in several ways.
They coordinate the largest annual event, drawing over 15,000, to the Wapping Fair, which provides a opportunity for more than a dozen organizations to raise funds, while allowing families to enjoy themselves at a low cost event
The Jaycees then use the proceeds from the event to give back to the community throughout the year. Most recently, they donated $11,500 to 15 non-profits, contributed $6,300 to the local food bank and have been asked by the mayor of South Windsor to assist in the South Windsor Strong program, which will coordinate purchasing meals from local businesses to donate to essential employees.
The Jaycees utilize only volunteers for the management and staffing of the event to ensure to maximize the donations to the community.
