The Jonnycake Center of Peace Dale is a non-profit organization and we rely on the generosity of our neighbors. Our operating budget is supported by revenue from our store, grants, and individual donations. We depend primarily on individual donations in order to keep up with growing demands. That's why we look to individuals, families, businesses, organizations, and faith communities for additional support.
We are beginning to collect donations for all of our holiday programs. Click here for information about our needs and deadlines.
