Special Events

As our name states, Jessica & Friends Community is truly a community, uniting individuals, their families, staff, and supporters. Jessica & Friends Community is an active community. Our mission and goals drive us to provide and assist our families by extending the community experience to special activities and events.

One of our most touch­ing events is the Christmas pro­gram. Co­or­dinated with the WINGS Minist­ry at Church of the Open Door, this pro­gram is pre­sen­ted by our speci­al friends who read scrip­ture, pray, sing, and per­form the Christmas story.

Each fall, Jessica & Friends Community hosts a Gala Celeb­ra­tion. The Gala is such a huge suc­cess, seen in the faces of our in­dividu­als, and from at­tendee feed­back, that this has be­come a treasured an­nu­al event. 

Each spring, Jessica & Friends Community participates in York Co­un­ty's bi­ggest on­line give day, Give Local York. Over 300 non-profit or­ganiza­tions par­ticipate in this 24-hour event. 

Due to COVID-19, the Gala and Run, Roll & Stroll event have been cancelled for 2020. We look forward to planning these events next year. Stay tuned!
