The SFCC Foundation sponsors Jingle on the Green as a “thank you” to the community. However, this holiday celebration involves an army of volunteers that include SFCC students, faculty, and staff as well as area high school students and teachers, community members, organizations and businesses who contribute to the spirit of giving and caring that makes the evening so special. The SFCC Foundation and college are grateful for all these gracious and giving individuals and organizations.
