Community Corner: Creating a Path to a Better Life – Annual JMI Clay Shoot

Creating a Path to a Better Life – Annual JMI Clay Shoot - Lee Company

When you combine reliable vendors and suppliers with dedicated volunteers, add an amazing cause, and sprinkle in some good weather – you have a recipe for a successful event. That’s exactly what happened at this year’s annual JMI Clay Shoot benefitting Justice & Mercy International. We were grateful for many things: the beautiful day, the extensive list of title sponsors, and the support of our community!

For the past nine years we have supported JMI, the global non-profit which continues to do great work for the people of Eastern Europe and the Amazon. You can find their teams on mission trips supporting orphanages and schools, while helping people in those countries create a path for a better life. Through funding and education, we have supported this organization and their mission. At our annual clay shoot at the Nashville Gun Club, we raised over $20,000 this year!

“The hard work of Richard, Emily, and all the volunteers at Lee Company, make the Justice Shoot one of JMI’s most successful events! Lee Company’s amazing generosity allows us to fulfill our mission to make justice personal for the poor, the orphaned, and the forgotten in Moldova and Brazil. We greatly value our partnership!” 

– Chris Hardy, Director of Programs and Partnerships, Justice & Mercy International

With the help of our dedicated sponsors, friends, and customers, we have raised over $164,000 for JMI!
