    Shoe & Coat Fund

    With the Shoe & Coat Fund coming to an end, our unit has collectively raised over $36,000 in contribution to the local charity with more donations still coming in. This is an incredible feat that could not be achievable without the immensely motivated Corps of Cadets we house here at Jefferson. Every cadet should be proud to be a part of such a great accomplishment.


    Our goal for this year was set at $25,000 which we have far surpassed. Last year we collected $22,000 and, in years prior, we have never come close to reaching the magnitude at which we are at now. Congratulations to everyone.


    Our top contributor this year was Andrew Panzarella with $3,040 followed by Zachary Knott with $1,750. Lima Flight brought in the most money at $4,727 followed by Kilo Flight at $4,702. Lima Flight brought the most money per cadet at $787.87 followed by November Flight at $320.67. Overall 54% of our corps participated in the fund this year.
