The Junior Auxiliary Of Slidell (JAS) is a 501(c ) (3) not-for-profit service organization made up of women committed to serving the greater Slidell community. JAS women are active leaders in our community who strive to focus our service projects on children, families and elderly in our area. As a member of the National Association of Junior Auxiliaries (NAJA), we endeavor to be active in our community by providing service projects that meet our local community’s needs.

With the support of our corporate sponsors, JAS developed nine service projects that provide assistance to area schools, families,and our general community. Our projects touch children of all ages throughout the community as well as impact entire families. Last year, JAS spent $20,000 and provided 1,900 hours of volunteer service while serving 11,000 people. JAS PROJECTS FOR 2017-2018 include: Backpacks4Kids, Happy Feet, Hearts United, Juniors in Service, Know Your Child, Literacy Liaisons, Slidell Cyber Seniors, Children’s Life Skills and Spelling Bee. One project at a time, we are making a difference in our community as we have continuously done for 50 years.

I invite you to explore our website where you will find information on our history, service projects, and our corporate sponsors. In addition, you will find links to connect to our Facebook page and how to follow us on Twitter. Please take the time to connect with us and monitor the phenomenal impact we are having on our community. If you want to help support our efforts, we would love for you or your company to become one or our corporate sponsors today!

With passion and enthusiasm, JAS not only dedicates our hearts, but we also provide our hands to serve those in need.
