At UPS Stores here in Western Mass. and Vermont, donations will go directly to benefit JAWM’s efforts in the community.

“We are so happy the UPS Store chose Junior Achievement to be the recipient of these donations,” said Jennifer Connolly, JAWM president. “All our chapters across the country will benefit immensely from these funds as we work to help children and teens be more successful in life. Thank you to the UPS Store for partnering with us.”
