As is customary at Operation Jack events, awards will be produced by residents of L’Arche Mobile, a community of group homes for developmentally disabled adults in Mobile, Alabama. Rather than spend the awards budget at a trophy shop, we donate to L’Arche — an organization very much in line with the charities Operation Jack likes to support — and residents create custom-painted canvases. More important that serving as a great fundraiser for L’Arche and an ideal vendor to support for awards, it gives the residents a fun activity to participate in. Win-win-win!
The front will have a custom design based on the location and the back has a bio of the person who created it. Everybody who earns one of these instantly treasures it — it’s a sentimental creation that won’t end up in a box with other plastic trophies!
