J.S. Jenks holds Fun Fest to raise money for new kindergarten center

J.S. Jenks School in Chestnut Hill hosted a Fun Fest Carnival fundraiser on Saturday to help build a new kindergarten center for the school.

Located in the heart of Chestnut Hill, the school has over 500 K-8 students.


Haviva Goldman, the president of Friends of J.S. Jenks, said they wanted to create an event that would raise money but would also be a community-building event that would bring everyone together — especially the kids.
