Beta Club Presents: Annual Thanksgiving Food Drive

*The Class with the most donations at each building will receive a pizza lunch and treats on November 19th*

South Loop Elementary offers an exciting organization by the name of National Junior Beta Club to develop student leadership. As a Beta member, students are responsible for bettering their school, community, and world. This is done by engaging in community service activities within their community or other communities in need. 

South Loop’s Junior Beta Club is partnering with Jordan Cares, a community organization in the Roseland Community again this year (our 5th year) to bring a holiday dinner to 100 families.  

The Beta Club is asking for your commitment to giving this holiday season. 

Items can be dropped off  October 25th – November 18th between 8am – 3:30 pm at the 1212 S. Plymouth Ct 60605 building or at the 1601 South Dearborn  60616 building.

You can also ship items directly to the school: Attention Mrs. Tara Shelton.

If any of our SL families are experiencing any hardship during this holiday season, please contact Mrs. Shelton

  • Preschool: can of greens
  • Kdg: can of green peas or green beans 
  • 1st: box of mac & cheese
