Feed a Child and Build a Future
Forrest Elementary, a Title 1 school has 552 students enrolled, with 70% receiving a free or reduced lunch. The Northampton Civic League feels every effort must be made to support children under such stressful conditions.
At the school, 160 children qualify for back packs filled with food for the weekend to supplement family meals. However, only half of the students who qualify receive assistance due to a severe lack of funding. Please help us ensure that all children in need of a meal receive one.
We need to raise $12,000 to provide all the children who qualify with food for the weekend.
The Northampton Civic League is committed to stopping the cycle of poverty in our community. We also pledge support for the teachers who work tirelessly to educate the children of our future.
Thank you for considering a donation. Please give what you can and share this site on Twitter and Facebook. Together we can make a difference in the lives of Alfred S. Forrest’s amazing children.
