Transforming Faith Church, led by Pastor Lee & Robin May, would love for YOU to join US as we have set a HUGE GOAL...We want to raise funds to pay off the negative lunch balances for DeKalb County Elementary Schools. We want our children to be able to focus on learning without wondering about what they will eat for lunch. When a child's lunch balance is overdrawn, in most cases that child will not have the option to choose from the main lunch menu, but will have to eat a different meal (for some schools it's a grilled cheese sandwich, for others it may be a peanut butter sandwich). Imagine the possible embarrassment for that child whose classmates are aware that they do not have money on their lunch account. This is not an issue of blame for the school system...it's a reality in all districts, in all cities/counties. Schools do offer free and reduced lunch...the reality however is that there are many families who do not qualify for the reduction but at times may still struggle financially to meet this basic need. We are aware that this will not solve all issues for the child, but it is a start! We also understand that there are a myriad of reasons why a child's lunch balance may be negative, but the CHILD should not have to deal with the ramfications, regardless of the reason. How great would it be for students to start off the year with a ZERO balance! Last year because of our efforts, were able to payoff all of the negative student lunch balances for nearly 12 Elementary Schools in DeKalb County, GA. We would love for YOU to partner with US in knocking out the TOTAL balance for even more students and schools this year. Share this link with your FAMILY, with your FRIENDS, with your CHURCH, with your SORORITY/FRATERNITY, with your CIVIC organization! Let's show our students that we can come TOGETHER to SHOW that we CARE for them!
* All funds will go directly to Dekalb County Schools, specifically for the negative lunch balances. We will follow the same procedure that was used when TFC paid off the lunch balances for last year. Transforming Faith Church: www.TransformingFaithChurch.com
