Linda Mangano was presented with the Julianna Blissard 2014 Humanitarian Award at the J.E.T.S. (Joining Everyone To Share) 17th Annual Dinner. The organization helps people in need on a one-to-one basis, with proceeds from their journal ads providing financial help to the less fortunate.
During the past year, J.E.T.S. of America has helped several children suffering from life threatening illnesses, such as leukemia, by providing financial assistance with medical and other care costs. During the holiday season, J.E.T.S. collects and buys toys to distribute to children at Winthrop University Hospital and for other families in the community that cannot afford to buy gifts for their children.
