ELLISVILLE – Jones County Junior College students in the Fine Arts Department performing groups, JC Voices and JC Jazz were overjoyed at the response of their first ever Toys for Tots toy drive. The public donated hundreds of toys as admission to a new holiday concert at JCJC called, “A Jingle Jazz Christmas.” The evening of jazzy Christmas tunes was spectacular, only topped off by the number of donated toys from the audience.
 
“We are very happy with the response to the toy drive as part of a new JCJC tradition in the Fine Arts Department. The Marine Reserves ‘Toys for Tots’ program was also pleased with the generosity of so many people attending the JCJC Jingle Jazz Christmas concert. JCJC students said they too enjoyed being able to give back to the community and showcase their talents,” said Dr. Susan Smith, JCJC Fine Arts Department Chair.
