Juneau Elementary Support Staff (JESS) Chapter Vice President and Glacier Elementary School custodian Jorge Cordero presents JESS member Stacy Morehouse with a check in support of elementary school breakfast programs. Members like Morehouse help serve breakfast to children every morning. Funded through contributions from organizations and individuals, JESS recently voted to contribute $1,200 to the program serving hungry elementary children. The program is affiliated with the Alaska Public Employees Association/American Federation of Teachers and represents para-educators, custodians, maintenance workers, school nurses and the administrative staff throughout the school district. The union contribution will be spread among the following elementary schools: Glacier, Auke Bay, Riverbend, Mendenhall, Harborview, Gastineau and Dzantik'i Heeni.
