Food Drive and Packing Party
Providing meals to students in need for Spring break
in partnership with
Support Our Packing Party!
Saturday, February 25th
Join us as we provide meals for children during Spring Break! 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 the under-resourced children and families in our community. The boxes will go home with the children over the Spring Break when there is no school meal program available.
WAYS TO GET INVOLVED:
1. Participate at Our Packing Party
We'll be co-hosting a packing party with our friends at Better Me Fitness and Performance on Saturday, February 25th, from 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM. Their facility is located at 1518 Navo Rd B-7, Aubrey, TX 76227 (adjacent to Paloma Creek Elementary and Navo Middle Schools). It'll be a fun-filled time for your entire family to come out and give back to those in need. The mealkits will be delivered to the students at their respective schools on Monday, March 6th.

We appreciate your giving financially so we may shop for the needed items listed above. $46 is all it takes to fill one box full of food. That's less than $5 a day to cover for one school week while these kids will be out on Spring Break! Any donations above the needed amount to fulfill the 160 meal-kits will be used to restock our inventory for the next packing party and any left over food items will be donated directly to Lovepacs.
