Feeding Families at the Jenks Community Food Bank

While the Jenks Community Food Bank is coordinating to feed the students of the Jenks School District that are in need during the teacher walkout, they also need help to distribute food to the families that regularly come to the food bank on Wednesday’s. The distribution will start at the food bank but may need to move to the dining hall at the high school.  They only need 10 volunteers to volunteer from 9:45-noon so sign up fast! It’s a great way to spend a few of your hours during the walkout.  Contact me at hungerelimination@jenkskeyclub.org if you have any questions.

Thank you for your help!!!

Roster Collector During Walkout

Mrs. Kimberling is helping coordinate transportation for the days teachers are travelling to OKC during the walk-out.  She is in need of 5-6 volunteers to help meet buses when they return to JHS, collect roster from driver, count riders as they exit, then return the roster to her in the Math and Science Building room 117.  Since several buses will arrive at the same time, we will need several students to help from 3:30 – 6:30 each day.

Please email karen.kimberling@jenksps.org if you’d like to help, you can email her anytime/day you can help to sign up.

Feeding Our Trojans

In the likely event of a school closure next week, there will be families in the Jenks community that will need assistance with food throughout the day, especially the students benefiting from free or reduced lunches. The Jenks Community Food Bank needs your help to donate food or volunteer to feed our Trojans in the event of a school closure.

The Jenks Food Bank website (jenksfoodbank.org) has pages dedicated to this project. In the sidebar, there is a link to the Feeding Our Trojans: Project 4424 that has all the information outlining the food items needed, where to donate, how to donate funds, etc.

Before volunteering at the Jenks Community Food Bank, if you have never volunteered there before, make sure to fill out the volunteering form. If you are under the age of 18, you will need a parent/guardian to sign it. You can fill it out at the Food Bank or find the form on the website under volunteers.

Address: 324 West Aquarium Place, Jenks, Oklahoma(One block south of Main Street in Jenks).

Please help in whatever way you can and email the Jenks Community Food Bank or me if you have any questions!
