Community parking will be located in South Lot 2 on Main Campus. In case of rain, the event will be moved inside to the C-Concourse. 

Last year over 30 departments and clubs on campus handed out candy to more than 800 local youth.   
OSA began this event to encourage students to give back to their community. It is an event where everyone can give just a little to make it successful.  

Amy Sims, coordinator of student activities and holistic wellness, said the students plan and participate in the event, giving them valuable leadership experience. 

“We have many talented students on campus who care about our community,” said Sims. “It is the commitment and the energy that our student leaders and JJC employees provide that makes it such a great event!”  

All JJC departments, clubs and student organizations are encouraged to register a car and pass out candy
