SCI Fayette’s Employees Association, Empowerment Committee, and management staff have been raising and donating money for #Jaxamillionstrong.

Jax is an 8-year-old boy from Carmichaels, PA, who was diagnosed with a brain tumor on Nov. 6, 2023, and is a relative to a staff member at SCI Greene.

SCI Fayette management staff donated and participated in “Dress Down Mondays” in November and “Dress Down December.” A total of $1,950 was given by Superintendent Walker on Jan. 4 to Jax’s stepmother.

The Empowerment Committee conducted a 60/40 Raffle during the month of January, and the Corrections Officer who won graciously donated back more than half of his winnings to the cause, bringing the total donation to the family to $575.

Clerical Assistant 2 Liz Cavalcante presented a check from the EA for $1,000 on Feb. 14 to Jax’s father and stepmother.
