hope changes lives
Thank you for joining us in serving underprivileged children. For The Kids is about helping children in our community. We deliver bags of bulk food to inner city schools, the parents pick up the bags on a Friday so that the kids have enough food on the weekends. They come back to school with full stomachs, ready to learn and start the week off right.
It is important for these children to know that others think and care about them. We can't solve all their problems but the food we provide helps with their immediate needs. The mentoring and development programs we have through reading and softball provides opportunities for a better future.
It takes many hands to make this happen. We need help from generous people. Every month approximately 20,000 items leave our shelves, which provides weekend food for the month: 10 Breakfast items, 10 Lunch items, 10 Snack items and 10 dinner items per child.
Approximately 20,000 items leave our shelves every month. Volunteers are needed each week to fill and organize bags of food. We rely on the community to help us keep our shelves full and we are truly grateful for all of the support!
