Jaycee Camp Hope
Camp Hope is a summer camp where children and adults with special needs can spend time with each other, have fun, and feel like they belong. To learn more about Jaycee Camp Hope, click here.
Teacher Supply Drive
We started a new annual event - the Teacher Supply Drive. While there are several sources for families to receive school supplies for their students, we saw the need for teachers to be supported as well. We collect donated school supplies as well as money to cover costs for classroom supplies each year. The best part is that each person who donates has the opportunity to nominate a local teacher to win the items.
Christmas Shopping Spree
Each year we partner with a local school to go on a shopping spree with children whose families can't afford to buy them presents. This is one of the great causes that the Spartanburg Christmas Parade allows us to donate to each year!
Spartanburg Christmas Parade
The Spartanburg Jaycees have been making the Spartanburg Christmas Parade filled with magic since the 80's. What many people do not know is that this Christmas parade is a way to raise money to donate to multiple events including the Christmas Shopping Spree & Jaycee Camp Hope. Not to mention all the smiles that it brings every 2nd Tuesday in December!! *Photo Credit to Spartanburg Community College - thank you for being a wonderful sponsor!
The Spartanburg Jaycees have adopted a road in Spartanburg county right behind Academy sports, where we clean up litter to make the environment cleaner.
Events with the City of Spartanburg
The Spartanburg Jaycees have volunteered with the City of Spartanburg for years. You can catch us at anything from Spring Fling & Music on Main to the International Festival & Holiday Carriage Rides.
