Leslie and Jenny Jonas of Lac-Brome, QC, Canada have been awarded the Calmer Choice 2020 Abacus Award. The Abacus Award was first presented in 2017 to acknowledge and show gratitude to individuals and families who have volunteered or shown generous philanthropic support. The award is presented to people the organization “can always count on”. Past recipients of the award include Cape Cod 5, Sarah Whitely and Taylor, and Barry Joyce.
Leslie and Jenny Jonas are the very first individuals who invested in the vital work that Calmer Choice was doing for students and teachers on Cape Cod. Since 2012, the couple has provided financial investment in the future of the organization while also providing emotional support and cheerleading to the staff as they built the non-profit over the past decade, eventually reaching 36,000 people.
