    SUN (Schools Uniting Neighborhoods) Schools typically offer fun after-school classes for students, parents, and the community. The goal of the SUN School is to create a community hub at Jackson Middle School where parents, neighbors, teachers, and students all join in creative learning opportunities.  SUN School also supports the whole family by helping with school supplies, food, and social services.

    Right now, during COVID-19, we are focusing most of our time and resources on supporting families with their basic needs. This means providing food deliveries, school supplies, etc. We can occasionally help with utilities and rent. Please get in touch if you need help by calling the number below or filling out this form.  

    We also help facilitate online activities like clubs, one-to-one student check-ins, and online programming. 

    I want to help!

    Due to COVID-19, we are not currently taking non-monetary donations. To donate money, please visit the Impact NW website and make sure to specify Jackson SUN as the designation. All monetary donations from the community will be used to support families' basic needs during these unprecedented times.
