A local organization is celebrating a decade of working to end poverty and injustice in the Chippewa Valley.
The group Joining Our Neighbors Advancing Hope, otherwise known as JONAH celebrated their 10th anniversary Sunday. More than 150 people gathered for the occasion. JONAH's mission is to bring people of all faiths and backgrounds together, in order to build a healthier and fairer community.
“We are very excited to reach this milestone and to be celebrating today,” Rev. Sandra McKinney president of JONAH told News 18. “So as the community gathers we are recognizing all the projects we have been involved with in the past 10 years, and making the community a better place for everyone."
Members also said the support they have received has been tremendous, and they couldn't have completed ten years of service without the support of the community.
