Our School Partnership

  • Making a Difference

    On September 19th, we packaged food bags to supplement the weekend food bags they currently receive from the Salvation Army.  The Salvation Army bags can only be given to JT students, so our bags will go to siblings of the students.  This will allow all the children of a household to have some food over the weekend.

  • Grant Program Helps Provide Healthy Snacks to Students

    Students at four Racine Unified elementary schools get to try healthy new snacks like starfruit and radishes this year, through a federally-assisted grant program.

    The Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program reimburses eligible schools for fresh produce offered in the classroom, giving students the opportunity to munch on familiar and unfamiliar snacks.

    The grant program is serving 63,000 students at 184 Wisconsin schools this school year, including our partnering school - Julian Thomas Elementary.
