    “The Jackie Joyner-Kersee Foundation’s board of trustees has worked diligently to strengthen relationships with the greater East St. Louis community and develop collaborations with other service agencies. We are pleased to offer our fourth-annual summer camp program in partnership with the YMCA of Southwest Illinois. In addition, we have  partnered with the Greater East St. Louis Community Fund to provide summer volleyball, basketball, track and field and swimming programs for boys and girls at the JJK Center and other East St. Louis locations. The JJK summer baseball and softball program has partnered with the Redbird Rookies program, a free developmental league for boys and girls of ages 5-13, funded and managed by the Cardinals Care program of the St. Louis Cardinals baseball organization.

    “Madison County has quickly emerged as one of the most important
and successful transportation and distribution hubs in the United States.  The county’s strategic location in the center of the country enables items shipped from the greater St. Louis region to reach 70 percent of the country’s population within 48 hours.   
IBJ May14 Page 13 Image 0030    As Madison County officials work to replace industrial jobs in the area that were lost to increased efficiencies and worldwide competition, we are capitalizing on the significance of the county’s strategic location in the center of the country and a viable intermodal transportation system that features the Mississippi River and the new south harbor at America’s Central Port, one of the country’s largest railroad hubs, an extensive interstate highway system, pipe lines and airports.  
    In Madison County, we work closely with Illinois and local leaders to create a business-friendly environment that promotes existing businesses and encourages new development.”
