The summer has officially begun! That is music to a child’s ears… except not all children are happy to hear the news.
A child should spend their summer playing outside, spending time with their family and swimming a lot.
Some parents can’t afford to pay to feed their child the extra meals of the day that were provided to them at school through free or reduced-price school meals. School was a good way to make sure those kids were being fed, but most of those children aren’t enrolled in summer meal programs so we worry about them a little more in the upcoming months.
Here at Second Harvest we are trying to help out those families. This is an issue that we must solve together. Some ways to help us keep these children nourished are:
- Monetary donation: Donate online or mail checks to
1411 Harbin Circle
Valdosta, GA 31601
- Food donation: You can bring food donations to any of our warehouses (Valdosta, Thomasville, Albany or Douglas)
- Volunteer at one of our warehouses: Contact Wes Kennedy to set up a time
(229) 244-2678 x 202
- Bring awareness to the issue: You can do so by sharing this post
Visit here if you or someone you know is looking for a summer program that offers free meals for children.
