Perry's In-School Food Pantry

Sheila Eloise  PITTSBURGH, PA
There are many kids who are going hungry at home. While there is some support through free breakfasts and lunches, we get the same portions as elementary school kids, and we have a school full of teenagers who are growing. 
Ten students put together a committee to organize and run an in-school food pantry. It will provide food and hygiene products for students in need to take  home for their own use and for their families'. 
If you will consider donating what you can, you will be of great help. We believe that adequate food cuts down on violence in school and helps kids concentrate while nourishing their bodies. We appreciate your support. 

Much love, 
The students of the Perry Food Pantry Committee

@Erin - I did a little interview with Sheila this weekend and she explained to me why they are not accepting donations of actual food/goods right now. It is on the radar, but they are taking incremental steps to develop the project .

Do you have a list of needed items/a place to drop donations? Or are you looking solely for monetary donations?
