For more than 10 years, Helping Hungry Kids has provided food packs to elementary school children who lack enough food on weekends and breaks.
Social4Good members were asked to sponsor a weekly supply of 300 food packs for Dogwood Elementary School in Reston Virginia, a Title 1 schools with 77% free and reduced lunch. Each bag contains items sufficient to provide 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, 2 dinners and 2 snacks to each child. To provide each child with extra cheer, members were asked to create Valentines to include in each pack.
Through the generosity of our members and thrifty shopping by Team January, S4G was able to create 700 food packs. To accompany the additional bags, a Call for Action was sent to Vienna Foodies who delivered 500 Valentines in one week.
These incredible results have been captured in a video of our members in action and words of thanks from Helping Hungry Kids and Dogwood Elementary School. Click Here!
