2020-2021 Holiday Celebration
Gifts were packed by JRJF Staff and dropped off at the four partner schools. Each school hosted their own Gift Pick Up to distribute the gifts to the students. Gifts ranged from toys, school supplies donated by PNC, and books for the younger students. Middle school students received Jordan Brand gear, such as hats, t-shirts, hoodies, and bags. Advisory Board Member Oscar provided 28 Nike water bottles and 179 pens. Selected grades also received items donated by Gatorade, including bags, water bottles, and towels.
Volunteer Spotlight – Holiday Celebration
JRJF Corporate Board Member Roger Veome, and his son Jordan did a school supply drive. They graciously collected various items, which were given to the students during Sherman School of Excellence’s Holiday Celebration.
This is Jordan’s second year collecting materials for the students and their families. Last year Jordan led a Coat Drive for families at R. Nathaniel Dett and Sherman School of Excellence. Please join us in a sincere thank you to Roger and Jordan for their outstanding efforts, and commitment to giving back to the communities we serve!
