The Jay Focus Group is a not-for-profit charitable organization that serves the towns of Jay, Lowell, North Troy, Troy and Westfield. Its community volunteers strive to create a sense of civic pride, generate community cohesiveness, and promote community spiritual wellness.
It’s organized exclusively for charitable, educational, and scientific purposes, supporting the Jay Area Community Food Shelf, Jay-Westfield School enrichment programs, the Jay Volunteer Fire Department, the Jay Community Center, the Jay Area Community Fresh Vegetable Garden, the annual children’s Halloween party at Jay Peak, the Jay Community Recreational Center, the Jay Athletic Association, Green Up Day, the senior lunch program on Tuesdays, and a Community Service Scholarship for Orleans County seniors.
This year, the Jay Focus Group expanded to also support the North Country Union High School Visual Arts Program and will send a child, or children, from the Jay-Westfield School to summer camp for a week.
The group has two major fund-raising events each year. They are the Monte Carlo Casino and Texas Hold ’Em Tournament on April 12 this year at Degre’s Auction House in Westfield, and the seventh annual Jay Summer Fest in downtown Jay on August 9. Other fund-raisers include ongoing food and clothing drives for the food shelf and, new this year, the first annual JCRC Easter Egg Hunt at the Jay Community Recreational Center on April 12.
In 2013, the Jay Focus Group was able to give out over $17,000 to local organizations, scholarships, and was able to buy AEDs for both the Jay Town Hall and the Jay-Westfield Elementary School.
