Thank You Chick-Fil-A for Lifting Spirits, Providing Thousands of Free Sandwiches

This week Jordan School District employees and their families have enjoyed a special treat thanks to the kindness and generosity of our community partner, Chick-Fil-A. Over the course of four days, the restaurant provided 9,550 complimentary Chick-Fil-A sandwiches, which were served to employees as they drove up to a number of our schools. Some schools made it a lot of fun by playing music and having staff hold signs saying thank you, we miss you and we’re all in this together!

Thank you, Chick-Fil-A for your true generosity. And, thanks for supporting Jordan School District employees and their families, bringing smiles and a bit of sunshine into the lives of so many doing all they can to support students and education during these difficult times.
