JISD Military Families Enjoy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving Holidays can often present a challenge for military families who have loved ones stationed far from home. For the 1st, 2nd and some three or more times, many of our J.I.S.D. military community celebrated Thanksgiving without their families. While some were able to reunite around the dinner table to celebrate Thanksgiving, many of them were serving on a Permanent Change of Assignment (PCS), Temporary Duty (TDY), deployments or overseas in combat and non-combat operations.

Three organizations stepped in to help and went beyond just good wishes for the holidays. They put their boots-on-the-ground and took action by providing a little extra comfort for the families during this time of the year. San Antonio Food Bank, Rackspace and Now Word Missions Ministries Outreach Project provided Judson ISD military-connected and numerous civilian families with special Thanksgiving baskets that included a frozen turkey, holiday fixings and fresh produce to help stretch the budget. A tremendous thank you to Rackspace & the San Antonio Food Bank for their "Fill A Box, Feed A Family" project and Now Word Missions Ministry for their continued support in its "O'Give Thanks" program.

JLA Teams Up To Help Hurricane Victims

Judson Learning Academy held their own drive to help out those affected by Hurricane Harvey. The donations were collected by the school and personally delivered by JLA Principal LaTanya Baker and staff to Katy Academy. What a wonderful way to give back!
