We Are Young Professionals Advancing the Mission of St. Joseph Orphanage

What We Do to Help?

SJO LEAD contributes the following to St. Joseph Orphanage:

  • Host an annual Monte Carlo Night Fundraiser: The 2020 Monte Carlo Night raised over $40,000
  • Yearly happy hours at local breweries to raise funds and awareness for SJO: Pints for a Purpose
  • Quarterly events with the kids at SJO including Saturday pancake breakfasts
  • Actively seeking donors or sponsors to provide SJO with assistance

The dollars we raise help fund counseling, medication management, and specialized classes for SJO’s children.
In addition, the funds support educational field trips, summer camp participation, and birthday gifts.
We are always to open to new ideas to help the organization!
