21C After School Backpack Program

Many families in our community struggle to provide the basic needs for their children, such as a healthy meal or adequate nutrition. While in school, these students are provided with free or subsidized meals, but some families may not have the resources to provide the quantity or quality of food for their children over the weekend. Through the generosity of the Randall Cobb’s Helping Hands Foundation and the Cornerstone Foundation, the families of our 21C at-risk after school program at Eisenhower, Doty, Howe, and Sullivan Elementary Schools are able to take home a backpack full of food each weekend to help relieve this challenge, so hopefully they stay happy and healthy over the weekend and come back on Monday ready to succeed at school!
