We are proud to announce that with our customers support we will be helping FEED THE NEEDY KIDS IN LOCAL ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS. We will be doing this by donating to the two programs currently in the community.
Funplex will adopt Kennedy Trail Elementary School’s Breakfast Program. The school is located at 8305 122A Street in Surrey. Kennedy Trail launched their first ever breakfast program in January 2017, offering a healthy meal to 20-25 students per day. Breakfast is made on school site, the school staff is volunteering their time outside of regular paid hours to run this program. They will shop, prep, serve, clean up, set menus and operate the program daily with the support of senior student volunteers. The cost of feeding 1 student breakfast is $0.75 per day.
Deltassist and Rotary Club of Delta has a program called Starfish Pack. In Delta Schools, students who are part of the program receive food every Friday for the weekend. The cost per child every weekend throughout the school year is $525.
In both of the programs, students in need are identified by school staff, teachers, counsellors and in some cases families themselves. Our combined efforts will offer some reprieve and allow students to develop a sense of hope for the future. Students will also see that people care for and are thinking of them.
