School Supply Drive
11-08-2014 by Default Admin
Jones Company Restaurant knows that in these tough economic times it can be difficult for families to afford all the back to school necessities schools request, and budget deficits in school districts make it impossible for schools to provide all the supplies needed. As such, many teachers wind up paying hundreds of dollars out of pocket each year for school supplies. JCR wants to help ease the burden. Our locations in Bonaire, Macon, McIntyre, Warner Robins, and Unadilla, Georgia are accepting donations of school supplies to help schools in Bibb County, Houston County, Dooly County, and Wilkinson County.
Now through September 7, 2014 JCR locations in Middle Georgia will collect school supplies to be donated to local schools. Customers who bring in supplies, will be given a free dessert. Dairy Queen locations are giving away small ice cream cones, Subway customers will receive a free cookie, our Warner Robins Krystal location will give out free apple turnovers, and Taco Bell will give out free Cinnabon Delight 2-packs in exchange for school supplies.
After speaking with representatives for each of the county school boards, together with JCR, it was decided that restaurants in Bibb and Houston Counties will choose one Title I school per location in which to donate supplies, while our Dooly and Wilkinson County stores will provide donations to the respective school boards who will hand out supplies to the four county schools as needed. The Taco Bell located at 498 Hwy 247, Bonaire, GA, 31005 is collecting for Huntington Middle School in Warner Robins. Lindsey Elementary School will benefit from supplies gathered at the Krystal restaurant at 10136 Hawkinsville Road Warner Robins, GA, 31093. The JCR Dairy Queen at 4700 Hartley Bridge Road in Macon will give supplies to Skyview Elementary School in Lizella; while their sister store, the Dairy Queen at 1608 Bass Road is collecting for Springdale Elementary School. The Dairy Queen located at 1045 Pine Street in Unadilla will donate supplies to all Dooly County Schools. JCR Subways at 5602 Thomaston Road in Macon and 107 Railroad Street in McIntyre are providing supplies to Union Elementary School and Wilkinson County Schools, respectively.
