Jacob was the kind of kid who didn’t stay in the background. If he saw someone needed help, he would jump right in and help.
He never met a stranger. He liked everyone right off, and everyone liked him.
Jacob's Ladder was created during the fall of 2011 in loving memory of Jacob. His parents, Kathy (Bryan) and Joe Parish wanted to organize a positive activity around his birthday celebrating his generosity, kindness, loving and "big kid at heart" spirit.
Please help in spreading smiles around East and Central Texas. All funds collected will be used to purchase new toys for children that are less fortunate. We are going to dedicate half the funds received this year to bring Christmas smiles to victims of Hurricane Harvey.
With the generous support from our family and friends, we have been able to spread smiles to over 9,000 kids during past Christmas seasons.
