Our unique mission is that we adopt our JCS Heroes, in the truest meaning of the word, and commit to provide support for the long term
The Joshua Chamberlain Society (“JCS”) is a grass roots, 501(c)(3) federally tax exempt charity that was formed with the mission of providing long term support to veterans from local areas that have sustained permanent combat injuries fighting the long war on terror for our nation. It also provides long term support to the children of local veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice in our service. Founded in St. Louis Missouri it has now expanded into a second chapter serving the Nashville Tennessee area. Each chapter runs independently so donors know their contributions stay with their local JCS Heroes.
The JCS Fitness Challenge, sponsored by the Fitness Partner, is a 4 minute exercise event designed to test your overall fitness level as well as raise money for our JCS Heroes. The Challenge consists of push-ups, medicine ball throw, sit-ups, and tire flipping.
This support is multi-faceted and comes in the form of gifts, tuition assistance, monetary donations, and the like–anything identified as something that will improve the quality of life for these heroic Americans.
Each year we continue to advance our mission of adopting and supporting more JCS Heroes. Through donations like yours, we have already affected the lives of eleven outstanding young men who have sacrificed and lost so much in the service of our country, as well as three children of two JCS Heroes who were killed in action.
Many hands make light work, and we appreciate the help of our volunteers. Whether it’s helping to setup an event, handing out items, or getting your hands dirty helping a hero our volunteers make a difference.
