The Austin Joplin Memorial Education Foundation recently presented Leapster learning sets to the Jacksonville Christian Outreach Center Toyland program. The Outreach Center provides food and financial support to those in need in the Jacksonville area. Toyland is held at the First United Methodist Church in Jacksonville and provides toys to the children of families in need at Christmas.
The Austin Joplin Memorial Education Foundation sponsors fundraisers during the year to help provide athletic scholarships for seniors at Weaver High School and teacher awards for the elementary school.
