Food Drive and Packing Party
Providing meals to students in need for the Holidays
in partnership with
Support Our Packing Party!
Date: Saturday, November 4th
Join us as we provide meals for children during Thanksgiving & Christmas breaks! Our nonprofit partner, Lovepacs, is on a mission to engage communities to feed children in need as an expression of Love. We will be packing and decorating lovepacs (box meal-kits) and creating love notes to provide to under-resourced children and families in our community. The boxes will go home with the children over the Holiday breaks when there is no school meal program available.
FUNDRAISING GOAL = $15,000
WAYS TO GET INVOLVED:
1. Participate at a Packing Party
We'll be co-hosting our first holiday packing party with Braswell High School's Boys and Girls Soccer Teams on Saturday, November 4th, from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM. The packing party will be at Braswell High School in the main entrance hallway located at 26750 E University Dr, Aubrey, TX 76227. It'll be a fun-filled time for your entire family to come out and give back to those in need. The Lovepacs will be delivered to the students at their respective schools the following two weeks before Thanksgiving break.
