Quakertown Community Outreach is setting up a community sponsored fund to help assist children and their families who are facing delinquent school lunches and the possibility of activities such as field trips, dances, and graduation ceremonies being affected.
Despite having free and reduced programs for lunch, many families are just above the threshold for assistance and have circumstances that cause them to struggle to pay for their lunch debt. That is where you come in.
Quakertown Community Outreach will utilize these funds raised to help those most in need and there will be a verification process. We will cross check any requests for assistance with our current spreadsheets on families we have vetted and had contact with over the past four years.
We will work to identify those in greatest need and prioritize those families. The full impact is of course dependent upon how many funds are raised by the community.
We thank you for being a caring member of our community and every single dollar counts!
If you are aware of a family in need, please ask that they fill out an application for consideration:
