$100,000 Donation to Keep Ogden Students Healthy

Recently, the Ogden School Foundation received a $100,000 donation from an anonymous community partner to make sure that students in Ogden had access to food and hygiene items, ensuring student health to facilitate better learning. We are so appreciative of this generous donation, which will be used to help stock the new Marketstar Student Resource Center with supplies to help students and their families (be watching for more info on that to come!). These funds were also used to deliver healthy snack options to every classroom in the district that teachers can utilize throughout the school day to help reduce hunger and fuel student learning (we delivered over 647 cases of granola bars!). In addition, we were able to provide "meal in a bag" kits for Ogden School District families, and also supply hygiene kits to be distributed at maturation programs in our elementary schools. This generous donation is reaching every student in every school!

"Thank you so much!" said one elementary principal. "This is a great time to have (these classroom snacks) since testing is upcoming and kiddos are hungry and anxious during this time of year." One of our high school principals agreed, saying, "We are so excited to use these snacks during testing! We distributed them to every classroom!" And a 1st grade teacher at another school added, "Our students are so excited! The kids definitely get hungry throughout the day, and this will make a big difference. We appreciate your generous donation and we know the kids do too!"
