Jumbago Hope

Local Women Entrepreneurs Panel & Winter Formal — February 2019

Jumbago Hope exists not only to create change, but to show the world that women of all age can make a difference. (Our story of being completely student run is a testament to that!) That’s why this year, we hosted a Local Women Entrepreneurs panel, to hear stories of how they overcame hardship, and continued to pursue their dreams, no matter what. This was such a fun, inspirational and uplifting event!

Pizza Party Fundraiser! - June 2018

Jumbago Hope & Olive's Fresh Pizza Bar partnered yet again to host a family pizza night at their beautiful restaraunt. This event was orchestrated by 'Jumbago Junior' a team of 6th grade girls studying human trafficking and hosting an event to learn how they can make a difference, even at a young age. We held raffles once again, sold products, held a coloring contest and hosted face painting. Thank you again to everyone who joined us for this fun and successful night!
