Jahkil Jackson MCC Youth Event

March 24 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

About Jahkil Jackson:

Project I Am was created by 8-year-old Jahkil Naeem Jackson. Jahkil, now 11, has a heartfelt desire to help those in need. After helping his aunt distribute food to the Chicago homeless, he knew that he wanted to do more to make a difference.

It quickly became Jahkil’s mission to build awareness of homelessness and to help the homeless population by offering them what he calls “Blessing Bags,” a giveaway filled with wipes, socks, deodorant, hand sanitizer, granola bars, toothbrushes, toothpaste, bottled water, and more.

Event Description

We will be having a short inspirational talk by Jahkil Jackson about his story, how he got started with his organization and what motivates him to do what he does. We will as a group contribute to his organization and his work by helping to stuff Blessing Bags. Blessing bags are kits created by Jahkil and passed out to homeless individuals in and around Chicago.
