BACKPACKS FOR SCHOOL!

backpack2017

These students received new backpacks filled with school supplies and their parents received their food allotments today.  Project Self-Esteem, another Carroll County nonprofit, raises over $9,000 each year to provide school children living in our client families with brand new school supplies.  Whether it is your time for food distribution or not, you may come in to pick up backpacks for your school aged children.

To be eligible, 1) the household must have been served this year by Loaves & Fishes;  2) the child must be in grades k-12 and appear on the household card; 3) a member of the household may pick up bags only for their household.

The money is in the bank and ready to purchase food!  Loaves & Fishes participated in Arkansas Gives: Share the Love event and ended the day showing with a great total.  We had 38 different givers and qualified for about $500 in prize money included in our final total.  Thank you to everyone who gave,  and thank you to everyone who shared the event by e-mail or on Twitter or Facebook.  These funds will purchase many pounds of food for us to distribute to our hungry families in Carroll County.   In the month of April 2017 we served 1,465 hungry folks 21,421 pounds of food.
