We appreciate so very much all of those people who put in their precious time to help us. It meant a lot to us and to Jordan. Thanks to Jordan’s great aunt Karen for driving the truck and getting all the items to the school.
Here is a list of the bakeries that donated. We send a big “thank you” to those who donated baked goods. The companies that donated are as follows: Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, Donut Connection-Rincon, Baker’s Pride, Kroger in Rincon, Savannah Candy Co., The Lady & Sons, Cookies On A Stick, Savannah Rum Runners, The Cake Corner, Kolache Depot, Exquisite Confections, Donna’s Delicious Delights, Cupcake Emporium, Savannah Cinnamon & Cookie Co., The Cake Lady, The Great American Cookie Co.(Oglethorpe Mall), Great American Cookie Co. (Savannah Mall), and Two Smart Cookies.
I would like to thank the following companies for their support also — Effingham Printing Company, Piggly Wiggly in Pooler, Quality Beverage (Cheerwine), Grand Harbour Furniture, Wiley’s Furniture, East Coast Furniture and Sonic in Rincon.
South Effingham Middle School, ya’ll are awesome. We could not have done it without ya’ll. The Y-Club did an extremely good job and I was so impressed with them as were those with the staff who volunteered those long hours. Thank you so much. Also, thanks to Countryside Baptist Church for the use of their tables.
At the yard sale/bake sale, we sold Nintendo Wii System raffle tickets and trolling motor tickets, boiled peanuts (compliments of Jordan’s Uncle Randy), sold hamburgers and hot dogs (compliments of the Butcher’s Block and Roger Wood Meat Co.), chips (compliments of Jordan’s cousin Thor) and drinks (compliments of Quality Beverage and other private donations). We did not get the chance to do the “Go Bald For Jordan” because everyone was so busy with the yard sale/bake sale. My apologies to anyone who may have shown up to get their head shaved. Maybe we can do that another day.
Thanks to all who donated and to all who came out and supported us.
Editor’s note: Jordan Jackson’s grandmother Dottie Taylor was inadvertently left out of the list of organizers for the event Saturday. The Herald regrets the omission.
