In 2015, there were more than 2,400 students in Jeffco Schools who didn’t have a permanent home or a hot meal to go home to at night. As educators we know this affects their ability to perform in the classroom, and as human beings we know what this can do to a student’s spirit. Every spring, we lead Grub Club in order to ensure all students experiencing homelessness or emancipation in Jeffco can have food and hygiene products throughout the school year.
Grub Club 2024
JCEA, JESPA, and Jeffco PTA will partner up again with the Jeffco Action Center now through March 8, 2024 to help ensure our students have food. We have expanded our collection of items through monetary donations. A $25 donation fills 1/4 of a box of goods. Any monetary donations helps fill a box for a student in need.
Each articulation area is assigned specific items to collect – remember these items must be portable and, if they require cooking, must be able to be heated in their container. Please no canned items that require a stove or can opener. See list below for fliers for each area, including collection items and monetary donation links.
