Hope of keeping Jacob’s Light Foundation running dims (12/5/12)

WOODBURY - After years of giving soldiers a little taste of home, the Jacob’s Light Foundation itself is fighting for its life.

The organization sends care packages to soldiers fighting overseas.
 
The foundation was founded in 2003 by Dorine Kenney in memory of her son, Spc. Jacob Fletcher. Fletcher died serving in Iraq. 
 
Kenney says the grant that has kept the organization going is running dry, and she is worried that the foundation may close after it exhausts the grant in two months.
