Since our founding over 50 years ago, Ball Homes has made it a priority for our company to support various charitable causes. We actively and enthusiastically partner with organizations that work to improve the quality of life in the communities where we live and work.
We would like to share information about some of the non-profit organizations that have impressed us with their commitment to serve, their success rates, and their overall willingness to take on difficult tasks and provide services to those who need them.
This week, we’re featuring Junior Achievement of the Bluegrass. JA of the Bluegrass has been serving Central Kentucky since 1963, impacting over 350,000 young people and celebrating their 50th anniversary in November. During the 2011-2012 school year alone, they reached 18,047 students in Fayette and 11 surrounding counties with various classroom and after school programs that educate and inspire young people about business, economic, and free enterprise.
This year, Ball Homes has partnered with the Junior Achievement of the Bluegrass in their Adopt-a-School program. This program allows us to sponsor a local school and provide them with the materials and equipment necessary to continue the program. This is our 11th year as a partner and we’re excited to continue our participation and commitment to help JA of the Bluegrass empower Central Kentucky students to own their future economic success.
