For over 20 years, community leaders, volunteers and organizations dreamed of having a gathering place for all ages in Jacksonville.
Learn more about the history of the Jacksonville Community Center in a short video below.
We are pleased to announce that the fund raising for the building, furnishings and equipment of the Jacksonville Community Center (JCC) is completed. We want to thank all the donors and volunteers that made this first phase a success.
Now the next enjoyable and lively phase of operating the Community Center begins. We hope that you can make a gift to help the Jacksonville Community Center be all that folks in our town hoped it could be—a place which offers arts, fitness, education and just plain fun to people of all ages in the Jacksonville area.
Consider becoming a JCC Champion, someone who makes a three year commitment to support JCC’s mission during its critical launch phase.

Contact the various resource centers and ask how you can help. Sign up to deliver meals for Rogue Food Unites or S.O. Fire Relief Meals. Contribute to the clean-up efforts. Reach out to those you know, who’ve lost everything and ask directly what they need help with. Rogue Volunteer Initiative is a group on Facebook that is helping to coordinate volunteer opportunities.
Adopt a Family
Pool resources with your friends, family and neighbors and identify a family in need that you’d like to support. Help them find a new place to live or a vehicle to replace what was lost. Set them up with household items. Stock their cupboards with food and pantry items and their closets with clothes to keep them warm. Donate gift cards for gas, food and other ongoing needs. Consider their lines of work and what tools and supplies they may need to continue to earn a living.
Participate and Share
Join the Medford Food Project. Add a few extra items to your shopping cart with each visit to the store and volunteers will pick them up and deliver them to Access and other distribution centers.
There are various relief funds that have been set up by local businesses, banks and organizations as well as special fundraising events. Find one that resonates with you, and contribute. Share it with your friends, create some buzz around it and help your contribution grow by encouraging others to participate. Here are just a few of many to explore:
