Stories and Successes
This year marks the 4th annual Project SAFE (substance awareness and family education) event in Jay County! But this time, at a new location: the Jay County High School! Project SAFE's mission is to raise awareness of the dangers related to substance use, and to help and encourage children to make healthy choices. It is a free event with bouncy houses, carnival games, door prizes, free lunch, vendor booths, and more! Stars in the Park Finalists will be there performing, along with the Jay County HS Show Choir. With the new location this year, we're expecting Project SAFE to be bigger and better than ever! There will be outside activities in the parking lot, as well as inside the high school.
This year, our speaker will be Rupert Boneham (yes, from survivor). Rupert is a Hoosier who donated a large portion of his Survivor winnings to start a children's foundation: Rupert's Kids. The mission of Rupert's Kids is to empower our participants to discover their inner strength, realize their own self-worth and recognize their value to society. With his famous tie dye and infectious smile that won him "fan favorite" on Survivor, everyone is sure to have a great day with Rupert!
