Wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What a generous donation to Jordan’s pantry. We cannot thank you enough. We are so fortunate to be supported by our community. As I unpacked the bags, I kept remarking to myself that Jordan students with food insecurity are well taken care of by our school and by partners such as Hope Valley Baptist Church.

Much appreciation,

Well, you all have blown us away with your generosity! Food weighed 192.6 pounds, and every single item were those that have made our shelves look ready for clients on Monday! Hygiene items weighed 72.5 pounds–and you brought just the right things! The detergent in particular is an outstanding help, as is deodorant with the warm weather coming finally!  Underwear………….so happy for this! Soup mix………..a bonus and extra meal for hungry families!

With gratitude,
