Join our Backpack Buddies Holiday Food Drive!

004Amy Kilgore with Backpack Buddies and the League City Rotary recently visited our school to involve the students in a program of giving to the needy in our community.
Backpack Buddies take canned and dry food contributions and store and organize them. Weekly, CCISD elementary school nurses identify needy families at their schools, and Amy and a few volunteers pack ingredients into backpacks for weekend meals. They then deliver them to the school and the nurse discreetly sends them home with children on Friday.  The empty backpacks are returned Monday to be refilled.
One in three kids in our area goes hungry away from school. Please be a part of helping those families in need within our own community. Each class at South Shore Montessori is collecting food till Thanksgiving. Please bring items and place them in your child’s classroom box in the front office. Thank you!
