*Revised Update for 2020:
To ensure the safest possible environment for our students and volunteers, and in keeping with state-issued mandates, the Christmas for Kids experience will be significantly different this year.
Volunteers are needed December 7th-10th (between 4-8 pm) to shop for a deserving student. Volunteers will not be shopping in-person with students. Instead, volunteer shoppers will be given a list of their student's needs and will be able to shop using a gift card provided by Jordan Education Foundation through community and business donations. Because students will not be present while shopping on these days, volunteers are welcome to bring family members of any age to participate in the shopping experience.
Register to volunteer & select a day to shop below.
"This is so much more than a great event. It is miraculous. It softens hearts, brings help to those who need it most, and creates bridges in the lives of some who feel alone."
Christmas for Kids works to provide a little bit of Christmas spirit for those students in Jordan District that would otherwise go without during the holiday season.
Deserving students are carefully selected by school counselors, administrators and Jordan School District specialists due to extreme need and personal circumstances.
Donations for this event come from community business leaders, and caring individuals, including Jordan Education Foundation Board Members, Jordan School District Employees and even fellow students!
Firefighters, military, police, business leaders, educators, and caring members of the community will volunteer their time to shop for a deserving student. Both students and volunteers consider this event a highlight of the year!
Give of your time!
Participating in Christmas for Kids will easily be one of the most fulfilling things you do this holiday season. The impact of volunteers is immeasurable. Thank you to the many volunteers who go above and beyond to make the shopping experience a truly meaningful and memorable event.
Thank you for joining us this year!
