Team up with Jamba Juice to support healthy schools and communities.  At Jamba Juice, nothing feels quite as good as helping out the community.  That is why they have partnered up with local schools and organizations to create a FUN and easy year-round fundraising opportunity: The Jamba Juice Sip to Support Program.
How it works: Register and receive a set of swipe cards to pass out to students, parents and other supporters of your school or organization.  Then, every time a card is presented with a Jamba Juice purchase, 10% will be donated to your local school or organization.  So the more you are sipping, the more they are giving.
For more information, please visit www.jambajuice.com or contact your local Jamba Juice General Manager.

As part of Pasadena's ongoing update of its General Plan, two interactive community workshops are set this month to discuss opportunities and constraints for growth over the next ten years and beyond.  Residents, business owners, non-profits, civic leaders and other interested groups are invited to participate. 


The workshops will be held on Saturday, September 25th from 9:00am - 12:00pm and Thursday, September 30th at 6:30pm - 9:30pm at the Pasadena Senior Center, 85 E. Holly Street.  The key questions: should Pasadena continue to grow into a more metropolitan city, strive for a small-town feel, or can we find a healthy balance?
