The J.U.I.C.E. Project Visits D.C., Is Honored By First Lady Michelle Obama

GMLP’s friend and member, angie colette beatty of the J.U.I.C.E. Project, and shawn mckie are back after a recent trip to the White House.  They met with First Lady Michelle Obama as part of a celebration for a new initiative called the Social Innovation Fund.  The two founded the Juice Box, Inc., located at 3003 Arsenal St. in St. Louis.
What angie and shawn found most rewarding about their trip was the First Lady’s acknowledgement of their work during her speech about the Social Innovation Fund Matching Grants.  You can watch Michelle Obama’s speech here.
Local media in St. Louis reported on their trip to the White House, including KSDK and Deb Peterson in her blog at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.  For more information about The Juice Box and angie and shawn’s trip, here is a link to the organization’s press release.
A big congrats to angie and shawn from all of us at GMLP!
