Pack A Sack Support

“Pack-A-Sack 4 Kids” is a community outreach program which the Robin's Nest has chosen it's school year mission. Please help us raise money to feed food deprived children in the Clearwater, FL area.

“Pack-A-Sack 4 Kids” is a community outreach program of United Methodist Cooperative Ministries/Suncoast, Inc., local school boards in Pinellas, Manatee, and Pasco Counties, and area churches and collaborative partners. The program is designed to help address the problem of chronic hunger among elementary age children in our public schools. This has been estimated to be approximately 10-15% of all children eligible for free or reduced meals at school.

Our Pre-School is sponsoring 2 schools in the Clearwater area, which at considered "At Risk". The children generally will have little to no food over the weekend. This program provides healthy foods to children via their school and volunteers and supporters.

Since the school is in a church and the church also sponsors our Cub Scout Pack, we are donating $1.00 from every wreath sold to Pack A Sack. Also, we are going to try and get our scouts to help pack these food sacks as part of ourt community give back efforts.

If you would like to donate to Pack-A-Sack, here is the direct page http://www.youcaring.com/nonprofits/pack-a-sack-4-kids/93319

  1. This sounds like such a nice way to give back to your local community! I'll have to see if anyone is doing anything similar in my area!

  2. I'm so glad you brought awareness to this. Our local school district has a backpack program like this for the weekends for kids. It breaks my heart that anyone would allow a child to go hungry.
