Beta Club Thanksgiving & Christmas Drive

During these difficult times with the covid pandemic, we are asking for your support for families in need.  

South Loop Elementary offers an exciting organization for student leadership named National Junior  Beta Club. 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. 

Beta Club is partnering with Jordan Cares in the Roseland Community again (our 4th year) to bring a holiday dinner and holiday cheer to 100 families.  The Beta Club is asking for your commitment to giving this holiday season. 

Items can be dropped off any day ( October 31st- Nov 19th) between
8am – 3:30 pm at the 1601 South Dearborn location only. You can also ship items directly to the school attention: Mrs. Tara Shelton.
