We are very proud of the accomplishments we have achieved. We are excited for the future and the impact that we can make going forward!
In addition to monetary donations to classrooms for books, we have provided a reading/listening center to a first grade classroom. We have purchased iPads and headphones for a second grade classroom whose school did not have a library. These iPads put thousands of stories in the hands of these children as well as tools to improve reading and math skills at various levels.
"I will be forever grateful for the support from Jen's Just Be You to provide a listening center for my classroom! We use it everyday and my students LOVE it!"

"Thank you so much for honoring Jen's memory in a way that is bringing such a positive impact to my 19 little humans, and the many other lives you have already impacted. Her memory truly does live on in an immeasurable way."

Each year we offer a scholarship to a graduating Pinkerton Academy senior who shows a passion for reading and writing as Jen had. It is a special part of our annual 5K to be able to award the scholarship in person.
We have a book drive each year. We have been able to donate hundreds of books to local children and classrooms.
Following in Jen's footsteps, we have volunteered our time to help others in need. Jen would often volunteer at Cradles to Crayons in Boston. We have made book donations and volunteered at their organization.
