Jai Jinendra,

JCNC Sakal Sangh is invited to twin virtual ceremonies on Sun Oct 25 from 1pm for distribution of US President’s Volunteer Services Award (PVSA) and recognition of COVID frontline healthcare professionals.

PVSA Award Ceremony During Mar 2019 – Feb 2020, JCNC youths have spent over 3000+ volunteer hours performing various community activities.  We are very proud to announce that 31 youths have received a congratulatory letter from the White House and an award from " The President of the United States of America " for their exemplary contribution to the community.

Youth volunteers have spent their time doing Beach clean-up, Serving food in shelters, River cleaning, Shoe drive, Coat drive, Temple cleaning, Technology class for Seniors, JCNC event support and Shala, Volunteering at SiVIC Events and the list goes on ...


Due to the pandemic we will have a virtual ceremony to recognize our youths who have taken an important step to promote Jain Values of giving back to the community.  Shobhaben Vora, BOD Chair will hand over the awards. Community presence, blessings and encouragement will go a long way for an ever-lasting impact in their life.


Recognition of JCNC Healthcare Professionals Despite the hardships and health risks, frontline healthcare workers continue to do their jobs during the COVID pandemic. Since March, healthcare professionals – doctors, nurses, pharmacists, lab technicians, EMT, Police etc. belonging to JCNC extended families are providing lifesaving services to local communities. We will virtually recognize all healthcare professionals. We invite such professionals to share their firsthand experience on COVID. If you like to speak at the event, please write the latest by Oct 15 to cultural@jcnc.org and president@jcnc.org.  

Dr. Nitish Badhwar, MD, Professor of Medicine at Stanford University School of Medicine; Parveen Jain, PhD and author of pioneering book on Jain religion “An Introduction to Jain Philosophy” and Dr Pankaj Vij, MD author of best seller book “Turbo Metabolism” will share their experience and thoughts on the COVID and lead us thru the recognition ceremony.
