Local nonprofit group Jack’s Helping Hand recently received two donations totaling $150,000 to help families of children with cancer and special needs.

Sammy and Michael Pineau, noted philanthropists in the community, donated $100,000 to the organization to be used where most needed.

The Robert H. Janssen Foundation fulfilled the second part of its two-year commitment to donate to the Jack Ready Imagination Park, adding another $50,000 to its initial donation of $50,000 in 2016. Half of the donation is being put toward park development, and the other half goes toward an endowment for the park.

“By standing behind Jack’s Helping Hand, this couple and this foundation are demonstrating that they care deeply about the real needs of the children and the families we serve. And they’re doing so in an above and beyond way,” said Karen Borges, executive director of the organization.
