All Soaps.com readers are aware of what an inspirational and fabulous actress, and woman, Y&R's Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor) is known to be. From her Lifetime Achievement Daytime Emmy Award to the Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress she received this year; Jeanne is recognized by fans and peers alike as a woman to be admired! Today, we give you yet another reason to applaud Jeanne - her support for a very worthwhile cause - the Springboard Center of Midland, Texas.

In this latest venture, which means very much to Jeanne, she continues to amaze as she works alongside her friend, Mr. Tim Baker, to champion the cause of Midland-area men and women (and their families) who require assistance, counseling and/or support to overcome alcohol and drug addictions.

The project is officially underway, meaning it won't be long before clients, regardless of financial status, will have the access they need to the vital services the Springboard Center will provide.

Soaps.com is so very proud to help promote Jeanne's efforts in this endeavor. To find out how you can help, or to access information on this project near to Jeanne's heart, please visit the Springboard Center.
