Q- Who started Joyful Welcome and why?
A- Kim and Joye Rolfe have been members of the West Jordan community for over 38 years, and have a love for this city and its’ residents. When Kim was recently elected to be the Mayor of West Jordan, it was suggested that his wife Joye start a women’s organization in support of one of the cities needs. Joye had heard of similar foundations in other states, and loved the idea of bringing a helpful start to the citizens of her community as well. With the help of loving friends and donors… Joyful Welcome was born!
The name ‘Joyful Welcome’ was suggested by a friend of the foundation, Pam Young, as a great play on the founders name, Joye. – Thank you!
Q- I lost the brochure that came with my layette. Where can I find another copy?
