In February, Jessica Stevens Community Foundation held a new event – The 907 Quest. The event used some real-life superheroes – people who courageously worked for change, including one who was dear to our community, Jessica Stevens. The goal of the event was to promote giving to your community, whether it be a monetary donation, by helping others or being a leader with a dream to make the world a better place.

The quest was inspired by former board member Kathy Trump and created by Stacie Smiley, a JSCF advisor board member and designer of the ‘superhero’ graphic featuring Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr. and Jessica Stevens. Stacie created a poem that led participants on a journey around the Talkeena village while cleverly hinting at the superhero they were heading towards. Each superhero had a display with their image and a clue to a word puzzle to solve at the end of the quest.
A family that successfully finished the quest.
