It’s that time again: Jeffco’s Grub Club is asking for donations to help homeless and emancipated students in Jeffco Schools.

Grub Club provides boxes of food and personal hygiene products to needy young people.

Jeffco’s Grub Club hopes to fill at least 1,600 boxes this year with supplies for students. Those supplies are used to fill boxes with three days worth of food and personal hygiene products for homeless and emancipated Jeffco students.
