COVID 19 Relief
Jordan loved helping and serving others. During our current health crisis caused by COVID-19, Jordan would have wanted to show her appreciation to frontline workers at HealthPark where she was born. The foundation provided meals from Jason's Deli (where Jordan worked) to three departments at HealthPark Medical Center to feed frontline workers and healthcare heroes. In addition, the foundation donated nearly $6,400 to Community Cooperative Missions for their food pantries to support the increased need caused by COVID-19.
