Jay Donaldson ReClaim Northside Ambassador “I’m excited to get my hands in the dirt. It makes me happy to see something I made grow, and to work with others to see it through.” About Me I’m an artist in many ways. I’m a musician – I play and write music and play in a blues band. I love working in the community I live in. In 2007 I founded the P.R.O.M.I.S.E organization. I like planting, growing things, long walks in the forest, traveling, riding on road trips, cooking meals, health foods, and hot and spicy foods. I want to help elders in every way that I can. What challenges face your community? Plenty of things need to be fixed up and repaired for the betterment of the community. We need more resourced to help others achieve their goals. Also young people need a place they can be safe and play and learn. What is your favorite place in your neighborhood? My backyard, because it’s a place that I can relax and meditate, think about my life and clear my head.
