During the school year, children’s meals are supplemented by food provided at school, but on summer break, breakfast and lunch aren’t available. Your donations feed kids who are home on summer vacation.
With kids home and some factories laying off workers during the slow summer months, families often face more financial needs. Some families find they must choose between utilities and food. Your donations keep people’s water or electricity on, provide prescriptions for seniors, and cover rent to keep families in their homes.
When you donate new clothes for the children in our community, you help students feel good about going back to school in new tennis shoes and clothes that fit right. As fall approaches, we’re also in need of new coats to keep our families dressed appropriately for the elements.
