Last year, we collected $3743 of our $5000 goal
thanks to your generosity!
And this year we collected $3400!
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.
On Wednesday, June 26, 2019, we delivered a total of $3400 to Hampton and Newport News School Systems to help erase school meal debt for local families, while raising awareness about the issue and fighting problematic policies!
Every dollar we raised went to relieving school meal debt for local families finding it hard to make ends meet. Thank you again for your help! We will announce our next fundraising efforts soon!
