June - Collection of Food for Hungry Children
Helping children in food crisis situations has been the mission of Nourish NC for the past eight years. During the summer months, children from five local schools receive a box filled with canned ravioli, protein bars, instant breakfast packets, canned tuna, soup, juice boxes, crackers, and other healthy snacks - enough to feed them for one month. They receive a box in June and another one in July to support their dietary needs over the summer.
We will be collecting individually packaged food for this program in the month of June. Please help feed these hungry children.
Collection of Box Tops for Education— We collect the Box Tops for Education coupons found on many General Mills products. Roland-Grise Middle School PTA receives ten cents for each box top. A jar is located on the foyer table for the coupons. We have donated $170 in box tops to date.
