Here are some of the community events we participate in each year.  If you are looking for ways to volunteer or give back to your community, please contact us.  We are always in need of volunteers.

Neighbors Day (Spring)

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. 
Habitat for Humanity of Greater La Crosse has taken over the project for the JCI La Crosse.   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.

Rotary Lights (Fall)

JCI La Crosse spends one Saturday or Sunday morning each year to help with hanging the lights for the drive through tunnel at Rotary Lights.  There is a lot of work that goes into putting Rotary Lights together for the community to enjoy.  Please help us to do this one task to help Rotary Lights or check their site for how you can volunteer with them.

Toys For Tots (Fall/ Winter)

       JCI La Crosse “Toys for Tots” program has been successful in bringing toys to children in our county for over 80 years. This year, we expect to provide toys to more than 1300 children in La Crosse County and La Crescent, MN. The “Toys for Tots” program provides free toys to children, ages 0-12, whose parent or guardian registers with our organization. Parents/guardians will need to list their child’s age, gender, and interests such as games, dolls, trucks, etc…
