The JennaJackPack Project (JJPP) aims to provide an effective and tangible way to comfort children – those affected by a loss of a parent or sibling – as well as their peers.
JJPP partners with schools, youth groups, and local communities, to create and JenaJackPacks to youth coping with the devastating loss of a loved one. JennaJackPacks are filled with snacks, toys, and other fun treats that provide comfort to grief-stricken children. These small, but meaningful gestures are mutually beneficial. When children in mourning open up their JennaJackPack, it’s like getting a reassuring hug. In return, young people who participate in the JJPP experience the healing power of empathy, and recognize the positive difference they can make in service to others.
