More Food Collection/Distribution Programs
Each Friday afternoon, 255 K-3 kids in this most vulnerable school age population in the Oshkosh Area School District are discreetly provided with a food filled backpack to ensure that they have something to eat during the weekend and return to school on Monday mornings “ready to learn”.
The program has been received with great enthusiasm and demand has been high. We are looking to expand our program in the 2012-2013 school year from the current 255 students to 600 students in up to 3 other high poverty schools.
Items needed include: Fiskars scissors, 24 pack crayons, rulers, 12 pack colored pencils, index cards, protractors, compasses, school pencil boxes, deodorant, toothbrushes & toothpaste, shampoo & conditioner, and more!
Stuff the Bus will be held on Friday, August 5, 2011 from 3:00 pm to 6:30 pm in the ShopKo parking lot at 1300 S. Koeller St.
