Our school community is really the best. The second grade collected over $-- of food (### POUNDS!!). Their classroom was getting crowded!
Kylee came to talk to us about her organization, why she started it, and how much our food will help the children she serves. She also talked to us about hunger, and how we all have the ability to help people in need.
Welcome back from the long Christmas break! We hope your holidays were full of fun and family.
We are ready to go with our next campaign for #MakeaDifference. The second grade is collecting donations for Kylee's Kare Kits for Kidz. Kylee is a local student who started this organization three years ago. She saw that some of the kids in her school didn't have food to eat for breakfast or lunch, and she wondered about what they ate at home. She learned that many of them go hungry - and that wasn't acceptable. Now, her organization assists over 300 children and teens in Leominster. They receive packs of food that provide nutrition on weekends and during school vacations.
Each grade is responsible for a specific food item or group of food items, to round out the packages of food. For more information, please contact Mrs. Smith.
Remember - every single item donated to Kylee's Kare Kits is distributed to a needy child in our own neighborhoods. Thank you for your support!
