Specific activites that the Jim Thorpe club carries out in area are these:


The Dictionary Project.  A national program where each year we distribute a dictionary to each third grader in the Jim Thorpe Area School District.


Holiday Gifts.  With the help of community friends, and students from Carbon Career & Technical Institute,and Jim Thorpe Area High School, along with additional financial support, the club selects, buys, wraps, and distributes needed items of clothing to local children identified by their school counselors.


Summer Recreation Program.  A summer day camp program for JTASD children in grades 3-7 provides morning and afternoon sessions for 8 weeks with activities, games, sports, art & crafts.  Due to broad community support, this program is offered at no cost to participants.   Currently on hold.


Other projects and programs we support financially are the Dimmick Memorial Library, Jim Thorpe Chamber of Commerce, Bach and Handel Chorale, and Halloween Parade, the Jim Thorpe Sports Hall of Fame, the Mauch Chunk Museum and Cultural Center, and the Jim Thorpe Fire Department.
