Jack Henry and Associates (JHA), Monett headquarters, participated in a fundraising event during the summer months where associates paid $1 a day to wear shorts and flip-flops to work. The event, combined with a special breakfast fundraiser, raised $6,000 to support six local public schools with their backpack nutrition programs. Aurora, Cassville, Monett, Mt. Vernon, Pierce City and Purdy backpack programs will each receive $1,000. A check presentation for the Purdy School District backpack nutrition program is pictured above.
