Comcast Cares

This year Comcast Cares made a huge lasting difference at TWO schools in Jordan District and set a record for the number of volunteers participating.  Despite the rain and cool temperatures over 2600 volunteers showed up to Sunset Ridge Middle School & Riverton High School on a Saturday to clean the grounds outside the school and deep clean areas inside.The volunteer efforts of both schools combined earned over $40,000.00!

Thanks to the Nuskin Force for Good, Jordan School District received over $33,000.00 in support of S.T.E.M. research-based projects.
