Dover's Kids Will Thank You

by Pam Raley

Want to make a real difference to Dover’s children, right now! You can do it through our local End 68 Hours of Hunger program where your contribution of a can of tuna or a jar of peanut butter is the difference between healthy food or a growling stomach for some local children

over the weekend. The program coordinates with the Dover School System to send bags of food home on Friday afternoons with children identified by school nurses. The “68 Hours” is the time between Friday evening and Monday morning when eligible children are most at risk of being hungry. The children often participate in their school’s breakfast and lunch programs.

 

The first food collection of the new school year will be staffed by residents of Ward 1. Come meet your Dover Dem neighbors and make a difference in a young life.
