Jordan Sidoo raises $5,600 through online sales of school supplies

manjyOn February 13, 2014, 17-year-old Jordan Sidoo, along with his parents David and Manjy, joined forces to serve a hot pancake breakfast to more than 60 children at Queen Alexandra Elementary School in Vancouver.

On this day, Jordan donated $5600 to the school’s emergency breakfast program, raised through the sales of pen/pencil sets and tote bags through his fundraising website David and Manjy Sidoo added another $4400 from the Sidoo Family Giving foundation.

During the Queen Alexandra Elementary pancake breakfast, Jordan presented a cheque in the combined total of $10000 to a school representative. And Queen Alexandra can certainly use the money – their emergency breakfast program consistently feeds nearly 70 children each day.

Diligent and determined, Jordan continues to raise more funds to support much-needed emergency breakfast programs in Vancouver area schools.
