Everyone deserves a Christmas full of laughter, love and everlasting memories. Let us come
together as a community to ensure all the Jackson Polar Bear Cubs and their Families have
a Christmas to remember.

The elementary teachers of our community come together each year to take care of the
children and their families within each school. Every school does it differently, but the end
result is the same. A home full of giggles and happiness on Christmas morning, a gift or
two under the tree and maybe even a warm meal.


The goal of this event is to financially help the teachers of each school provide for these
families. All proceeds will be divided evenly among our 4 elementary schools.
