Jenna Freeman, Jeff’s oldest niece, chose to contribute to the ADVOT Project.  In 2021, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Advot Project, Jenna sponsored the many reunion activities for the graduates of the program. In 2020 her contribution paid for the creation of care  packages to underserved children with art supplies to be used on Zoom during the pandemic.  A previous donation covered the cost of monthly gatherings of alumni youth who have attended the program.

The Advot project empowers youth and young women from disadvantaged backgrounds to take control of their lives by teaching them communication skills and healthy relationships through theater arts. The alumni program helps to identify short-term needs and set long-term goals for success and to provide participants with academic and professional resources.
