Help Struggling JPS Families
Wednesday, December 20, 2017 10:00 AM

A number of Justice Page Middle School families are struggling to meet basic needs. Page's social workers are collecting donated items to help our students and families.

Gift cards: Gift cards help struggling families with the holidays and beyond. We would love to have gift cards on hand to distribute where help is most needed. In particular, gift cards from the following stores would be most useful: SuperAmerica, Cub, Walmart, Target, and the Braid Factory. We’re especially in need of gas cards (e.g. SuperAmerica), but any cards in any amount are welcome!

Clothing, gift items, and school supplies: Especially at this time of year, we would love donations of LEGO Star Wars items, men's small winter coats, men's medium winter coats, size 8.5 men's tennis shoes, size 11.5 men's tennis shoes, 3-ringed zipped binders, and spiral notebooks.

Food Pantry: Our Food Pantry provides food-insecure students and their families with vital nutrition in a stigma-free environment. We provide access to food for students and their families both during the day and after the school day has ended. We’re collecting non-perishable food items, like chunky soups, ramen noodles, and canned fruit. (Note that for storage reasons, non-canned items can only be accepted in small boxes—for example, we cannot store full boxes of breakfast cereal!)

If you have items to donate to our families, please drop them off in the bins in the main office, or at tonight's Multicultural Night.
