They are giving from the heart in a big way and students throughout Jordan School District will feel the love and support this holiday season. Jordan School District and the Jordan Education Foundation cannot thank members of the community enough for coming together to make sure families and children in need have food and gifts for Christmas this year.
Here are just a few examples of community generosity:
- An entire South Jordan neighborhood gathered for a “Charity of Light” event, with residents spending the night collecting clothing and food to fill Principal’s Pantries in Jordan School District schools.
- “The Local Bee” donated 900 beanie bags to be given out to students participating in this year’s Christmas for Kids event at Walmart. Each bag contained a brand-new beanie for students to wear and other goodies.
- Local Stir’s cereal wanted to support students this holiday season as well. Stir’s donated 600 boxes of breakfast cereal to the Jordan Education Foundation so that every student involved in Christmas for Kids can receive their very own box to enjoy over the winter break.
Thanks again to everyone for making the holidays bright and warming the hearts of students and families in need.
