Dyron and Kelly Howell discovered more than 3,200 children in the Amarillo Independent School District relied only on the meals served to them at school for their weekly food. That meant hundreds of children spent their nights and weekends hungry.
Determined to find a way to address this need, the Howells assembled 10 bags of food that could be prepared without adult supervision. On Friday, September 3, 2010, the first 10 SP4K recipients received a bag containing enough food to get them through the weekend.
Today, the program has grown to serve more than 10,000 kids in 51 school districts.
Jax is proud to donate over $100,000 annually to help support this great cause.
Additionally, $163,600 was raised by our local beef and dairy community at the Beef 4 Kids Classic golf tournament hosted by Texas Cattle Feeders Association in 2019. 100% of this money will go towards making sure the kids we serve have access to 5 pounds of beef protein in their Snack Paks this year.
Thanks also goes to Tyson Foods, Baptist Community Services, Friona Industries LP, Hi-Pro, Caviness Beef Packers, Cargill, Cactus Feeders, Micro Technologies, BSA Care Xpress, Kemin, and Champion Feeders.
Tornado Alley BMX Park was created to bring back the joy of BMX biking in the Amarillo area and to help give kids an activity that not only keeps them out of trouble, but gives them the physical and mental activities that can lead to healthy lifestyles.
Tornado Alley BMX park also gives young kids the opportunity to experience what it’s like to ride like we did when we were kids. An opportunity to get time away from the Xbox and to exercise more than our thumbs. It’s a great experience to be able to see kids enjoy biking like we did when we were young.
Jax has purchased 20 bicycles and about donated $10k in tools, services and supplies for the Torando Alley BMX park. Helping Amarillo kids stay busy and out of trouble while promoting healthy lifestyles is part of our mantra to pass our good fortune forward.
