“At JX, we are trying to make a difference, on and off the road. We aspire to be our best, continuously improving, strengthening and building value to our Associates, Communities, Customers and Industries we serve. Community service, support and engagement is woven into the fabric of our organization’s culture. Besides supporting countless charities and organizations, including local food pantries, hospitals, shelters, customer charitable causes and foundations, JX has established several company-wide community support initiatives,” said Eric Jorgenson, CEO, in a statement on the company’s website.  

“We are very grateful for this donation, and for companies in our area that take pride in caring about our community,” stated Lynnette Kalmadge, Executive Director, Waukesha Education Foundation, Inc.. “By supporting the Waukesha Education Foundation, Inc., JX Enterprises is investing in local education, as well as their future workforce.”

Each year, WEF raises funds through community events and business partnerships to award grants to local educators for programming and resources that normally would not be covered in school budgets. The organization welcomes business, community organization and individuals to get involved through monetary donations and volunteer opportunities.
