Toys For Tots

TFT WhiteThe La Crosse Jaycees® “Toys for Tots” program has been successful in bringing toys to needy children for over 70 years. This year, we expect to provide toys to more than 1300 needy children in La Crosse and surrounding Counties. The “Toys for Tots” program provides free toys to children, ages 0-12, whose parent or guardian registers with our organization in conjunction with The Salvation Army. Parents/guardians will need to list their children’s age, gender, and interests such as games dolls, or trucks.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact our Toys For Tots group at

The Food Fair has great food from some of the best local restaurants and dining establishments in the Coulee Region. There are events, activities, and entertainment for people of all ages. Whether it is the Art & Craft Fair, many water shows, or the late night bands, you will not be disappointed with this annual family event! Come on down to Riverfest this year! The La Crosse Jaycees assist with Riverfest by participating as bartenders during the celebration. Through the money received, the La Crosse Jaycees pay for the wonderful display of fireworks seen on the 4th of July.


Neighbors Day 

LOCATION:Neighbor's Day Home Page

In 1996 a group of community volunteers coordinated themselves to create a day where citizens of the La Crosse community would assist their elderly and disabled neighbors with maintaining their homes in the spring by raking yards, washing windows, trimming shrubs, and turning gardens.

Neighbor’s Day will be held annually and staffed by  Volunteers. 
La Crosse Area Habitat for Humanity has taken over the project for the La Crosse Jaycees.   The Jaycees will continue to help with the project by assisting with the cleanup as well as organizing the Tool Shed at the registration site each year.
If you need your yard work done or would like to volunteer, please visit to register!   
We would like to thank all of our loyal volunteers that have generously sacrificed their time each spring to help make Neighbors Day such a success over the years as well as our city a better place. 
Please continue to Volunteer and Support this great opportunity by reaching out to the new project host Habitat for Humanity below.
We would also like to give a HUGE Thank you to our dedicated Sponsors, La Crosse Radio Group, WKBT, RSVP, La Crosse Tribune, Harter’s Quik Clean Up, and Culligan for sponsoring Neighbor’s Day over the years with the Jaycees.
