In keeping with the Jaycee spirit of Leadership Development through Community Service, the Pasadena Jaycees have many long-standing projects that serve specific needs in our community. Please consider becoming a part of one of these exciting and fulfilling events:
Rose Bowl Program Sales
Ring in the New Year at the Rose Bowl with 92,000 excited fans, by helping the Pasadena Jaycees sell official game programs. This project raises funds to support our great community projects: Op Santa, Op Gobbler, Foster Family Picnic, and more!
Five Acres Easter Party
This project will take place March 22nd at 5 Acres, a long time local residental facility here in Pasadena. The committee will put together lunch, activities, an easter egg hunt and pictures with the Easter bunny himself !
Helping kids with reading
Five Acres Summer Party
Five Acres, The Boys' and Girls' Aid Society is the oldest non-sectarian child abuse agency in the San Gabriel Valley and has been caring for society's most vulnerable children for 122 years.
We are honored to have such a great relationship with this organization that helps so many children for over a century. Aside from our annual Easter Party, we have recently joined their Children’s Guild and are now throwing our second annual Five Acres Summer Party! We will be planning activities such as sack racing, water balloons, a bounce house, and more!
Suport the troops that are fighting overseas ! This project has no political agenda, only the focus of appreciation and thanks to those men and women fighting in Iraq everyday.
Back to School
Every August, in conjunction with Mervyns, the Pasadena Jaycees take children Back to School Shopping.
For over 25 years the Pasadena Jaycees have helped provide low-income families with all the ingredients for a Thanksgiving meal. Volunteers help run corporate food drives and/or solicit donations outside local supermarkets. Funds are raised to cover
This year will be the 73th Annual Queen's Breakfast were we honor the current Tournament of Roses Court and their mothers along with all the past courts.
Calling all Santa's! And of course Mrs. Clause and elves!
As our longest-running project, Op Santa (as it's affectionately known) has touched the lives of thousands of children yearly since 1934.
Rose Bowl Colorization
Get involved with a Pasadena tradition: The Rose Bowl! Each year, the Pasadena Jaycees are able to assit in painting the field for The Rose Bowl, the oldest football game in American history.
