November 21, 2013 is the Great American Smokeout, a date that the American Cancer Society encourages smokers to quit or to make a plan to quit. JF&CS is proud to announce that the entire campus at JF&CS Headquarters in Waltham is going tobacco-free on this year's Great American Smokeout day in an effort to show employees, clients, volunteers, and other visitors how much the agency cares about their health and well-being. JF&CS feels that every individual has the right to breathe clean air and not be exposed to the effects of smoke and tobacco.
