Last year, we collected $3743 of our $5000 goal
thanks to your generosity!
This year, let’s hit the goal!
On Tuesday, June 26, 2018, VA BLOC, Rev. Maxwell with InTouch CDC and New Beech Grove Baptist Church, and Valerie Price of St. Augustine’s Episcopal Church and Lambda Omega Chapter of AKAs delivered the checks to the Newport News and Hampton school systems nutrition services offices to help pay off some of the debt. We tried to help relieve their debt before it goes any further and threatens the family’s financial security. Not all of the division’s debt was covered, showing that we have more work to do on both fundraising and policy change.
We are trying again to collect funds to help local families ERASE their school meal debt while also raising awareness about the problematic policies.
Every dollar we raise will go to relieving school meal debt for local families finding it hard to make ends meet. The deadline is June 2, 2019.
