Every year during the holiday season, high school students throughout Jordan School District give back to their communities by raising money for charitable causes and families in need. They not only give money, but spend countless hours finding unique ways to fundraise in hopes of making the lives of others a little better.
Thank you to all the students and staff who are dedicated to this charitable work.
