After generous support from you for the Thanksgiving school break, Kirkland Nourishing Network is asking if you can help with our longest, and largest, drive of the school year in December.
Since the size of this project is so large, would you please share this with your friends and acquaintances? It may be the most meaningful email you send all season.
For those unfamiliar with Kirkland Nourishing Network, we try to supplement the food available to needy school children during the 4 school breaks. Normally these kids have free/reduced meals at school and most have Pantry Packs on weekends; but there is no other program providing food assistance during the breaks in the school year.
We don’t try to do it all, but we do try to provide nourishment supplements to those children identified by school counselors and teachers as the most needy. There is a standard shopping list and an established drop-off date and location. This year, it is the morning of Thursday, December 20th at two locations, one in the south of Kirkland and one in the north.
Kirkland has a long reputation of stepping up to help the less fortunate. This opportunity requires your commitment to shop for a box of food and deliver it. The impact of those simple tasks is huge compared to the effort you have to put into it.
You make the network work. Please share this with your friends.
Thank you for your consideration,
- Kirkland Nourishing Network volunteers
