JMSA Celebrates 12/12/12
On December 12, 2012, JMSA held its Holiday Reception at the Columbus Citizens Foundation. Over 100 members and guests of JMSA attended the event. The main focus of the holiday reception was to honor the recipients of the JMSA Community Outreach Program (JCOP) grants, which totaled $20,000 this year. 2012 marks the 6th year that JMSA has awarded community groups with these grants. JMSA is the only organization that offers such grants to grassroots Japanese community organizations. The goal is to support organizations that offer vital medical, psychological and social support to the Japanese community. The JCOP grants are made possible each year by generous donations from corporations and individuals that support JMSA and JCOP.
