*These items are always needed
Each year the Foundation helps needy students get ready to go back to school. Backpacks and school supplies for students, grade K-12 are always in demand.
Our homeless student population moves regularly from home to home in search of shelter. Given the lack of permanence in their living circumstance, they often don't have access to basic hygiene item. JEF's hygiene kits are portable. And as basic needs are met, kids can focus on school. Donations of individual items, complete kits or funds to purchase hygiene kits all help support our kids!
Many families or students in Jordan School District don’t have enough food to last until the end of the month. Generous donations from our own community help supply food for our school food pantries.
Some students leave school on Friday not knowing if there will be food available to them over the weekend. A weekend pack consisting of several individual-sized meals and snacks can help get a student through the weekend until meals are again accessible at school. The average cost for one weekend pack is around $10.
Snack packs can be provided by a teacher or school administrator during school hours when a child has skipped a meal or needs additional nourishment in-between meals. The average cost for one snack pack is around $5.
Basic clothing items are in need year round. You can help by organizing a coat, shoe or basic clothing drive and donating collected items to Jordan Education Foundation. We work closely with Educational Support Services Department to ensure items go to those who need it most.

Jordan School District currently has over 2,100 homeless students. These (typically secondary) students often go nights and weekends without food or other essentials. Providing $5 or $10 gift cards can ensure that these students do not go hungry or have a way to buy the hygiene items they need.
Gift cards could be to local fast food restaurants such as Subway or Chick fil-A or a grocery or drug store like Walmart or Walgreen's.
