Thank you Fred Meyer

The Juneau School District gratefully accepted almost 250 pair of new winter boots from Juneau Fred Meyer to distribute to schools for children in need.

The Juneau School District appreciates the generous donation of winter boots from Juneau Fred Meyer. Our Juneau Fred Meyer store donated nearly 250 pair of warm, weatherproof boots for children in need. Thank you to Fred Meyer apparel manager Char Cross and store manager Anthony Gurule for supporting our students with this act of kindness.

The Office of Student Services Department was busy last week distributing warm, winter boots to Juneau elementary schools just in time for the return of cold and snow. “We’ve had a terrific response from our counselors and nurses and they are happily placing new boots in the hands of those who can use them the most,” said Mollie Eppers of the Students and Families in Transition program. “We are so grateful to Fred Meyers for supporting our most vulnerable students during their time of need.”

Thank you,

Kristin Bartlett on behalf of the Juneau School District
