Local partnerships feed school children during weekends

Area hospital joins effort to fight hunger

(Continued)

McNeese said the children at her school are very happy to receive the bags and often she will hear stories of them sharing food with siblings or even with their classmates.

“It’s nice to see kids helping out other kids too, without demeaning them,” she said. “Sometimes they will pass items around. It’s nice to see them not only receive items, but being more caring and sharing their items, too.”

Parents have thanked the school for the snack items in the food bags saying there is often not enough money to buy these kinds of treats, she said.

“We think it is so wonderful we have so many retired individuals helping us out,” McNeese said of the volunteers in the program. “We are also really grateful for the partnerships we have in the community. We really appreciate them.”
