Community Comes Together Taking Care of Kids & Spreading Joy This Holiday Season

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.

Oak Leaf Elementary PTA and Student Cereal Drive Results in Fun Game of Dominos

They are collecting hundreds of boxes of cereal hoping to benefit students in need, at another Jordan School District elementary school. But on this day, before donating the cereal, students and staff lined hallways with the boxes of cereal and then set them tumbling in a fun game of dominos. Students watched as the boxes fell, one after another, in a domino effect that had everyone excited and cheering the cereal boxes on.

The cereal will be delivered next week, so students in another school can enjoy a box of their favorite breakfast cereal over the holiday break.

Thanks to the Oakleaf Elementary School PTA, students, and staff for thinking of others during this special time of year.

Community Donors Help Provide Heartwarming Christmas for South Valley School Students

It was an early Christmas thanks to donations and support from a caring community and the Jordan Education Foundation. This week, 35 South Valley School students were treated to a holiday shopping spree at Walmart in South Jordan. Each student was allowed to purchase $150.00 worth of gifts for themselves and family members. Teachers accompanied the students as they shopped, together making memories which will last for years to come.

Thank you to everyone who made this event possible, supporting students and their families who need just a little extra help over the holiday season.

This Saturday, the Jordan Education Foundation and its donors will treat 600 middle and high school students from schools throughout Jordan School District, to a holiday shopping spree at Walmart. It is the 10th year of “Christmas for Kids,” and we cannot thank donors enough for their generosity and kindness, helping students and their families find joy, happiness, and some special gifts under the tree this holiday season.
