JCI Shakopee has a long legacy of helping those in need within our Jaycee family and the Shakopee area. Recently we were introduced to the FISH Partner Network – a partnership that provides us with a host of new opportunities!
FISH is a network of individuals and organizations working in Scott County to help support each other in meeting the needs of the community. When a member organization finds someone who has a particular need (help with rent, a bed for a child, food, a mechanic to help fix a car, etc.), they post to the network, and after being reviewed each partner gets an email with the details and a link to respond.
There are over 700 organizations and individuals involved in the FISH partnership, so our awareness and ability to respond to the needs of our community has now expanded greatly.
Keep an eye out for posts and information on opportunities that emerge from this partnership, and additional community outreach with other partners throughout the year!
