As of today, they have served over 29,000 meals to students. As you can imagine serving this many meals on an ongoing basis requires the constant use of PPE. Your generous donation will allow them to purchase PPE to keep their students and staff safe. This will also enable to keep their students safe one schools start to open up since they will still be serving breakfast. It is not certain how or when theri schools will reopen but there are two things that are certain, they will need to keep everyone safe and your donation will go a long way in making this happen.
