We have a vision - a vision to transform and build up entire neighborhoods, starting with kids and their schools in places that don't often provide the resources, comfort, or even safety that neighborhoods should be.
John Hopkins University College of Education says from zero to 18 years of age, kids will spend 91% of their time in those neighborhoods, outside the school hallways. The consequence is kids pay a steep price when they live in places where they don't matter.
Where does change start? We think it starts with kids and schools, and working together in a community to make a difference, whether its through helping with food, service, or other needs. What happens when kids to this? We see whole communities suddenly come together. Schools have always been a place of leadership, innovation and change, and when we work with kids, you wouldn't believe the change we see - in their lives, and in the community. Help us help a kid, and make a difference to a whole community.
Today, kids seeing the promise of bright futures themselves are change makers in your community - they're packing food boxes, relieving hunger, running toy drives, working in community gardens, operating CSA farmer's markets, and lifting up neighborhoods. What does it take for that to happen? It takes you - and every dollar counts. Today, kids and our staff source and assemble food boxes for over 250 families every week, where just $5 is responsible for putting a week of food for one family member into that food box. You've never seen a dollar go so far. Make a choice - a choice to help - and be a community uplifter for generations to come.
