National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 1-800-273-TALK (8255)

Main Street Monroe was  pleased to be co-hosting a special “Lighting Up the Dark” event in conjunction with Jacob’s SWAG celebrating the efforts of the organizations, businesses and agencies working tirelessly to support those in our community with mental health needs. 
We will glow up the darkness of the night to show our community support to all those who have lost loved ones , who currently are struggling and celebrate those who have fought the battle. And to show that it is OK TO NOT BE OK.

The Jacob’s SWAG Foundation was created to raise funds to help provide educational programs in the schools and community youth programs. These programs will SWAG (Support With Awareness & Giving)  in the areas of bullying, suicide prevention/awareness, mental health and making good life choices.

Jacob’s SWAG Foundation Inc. was created to be a tax-exempt program with no stock holders and no employees. Instead it is run by volunteers whose lives has been affected by tragedy. The Foundation helps schools and other programs provide education and help to children and families to increase the awareness of suicide by offering financial support for those programs. Although the SWAG Foundation is based out of Monroe, WI, its help is not limited to just Monroe.

Jacob’s SWAG Foundation Inc. is established in memory of our son, brother and friend, Jacob Ellefson. Jacob was a young man who passed away on June 7, 2012, by taking his own life. He was funny, loving and vibrant young man who is truly missed by all who knew him.
