Doctors for Healthy Communities volunteers delivered Kroger gift cards to JB Atkinson and Portland Elementary of Jefferson County Public Schools. These were received by Lisa Hirsch, Coordinator, JB Atkinson Family Resource Center and Michelle Cox, Family Resource Coordinator, Portland Elementary.

J. B. Atkinson Academy provides all students with a quality education based on academic standards, high expectations for achievement, and a respect for diversity and community. They are committed to lifelong learning, physical and emotional wellness, and preparing all students to be college- and career-ready by educating the whole child while supporting families and the community.

Portland is a fully personalized environment where learners receive experiences that are tailored to their specific emotional, cultural, and academic needs. They believe that every student has the opportunity to thrive, grow, and achieve no matter their starting place.

Thank you to the school principals and family resource coordinators who made this possible! We’re proud to help fight food insecurity this holiday season.
