I want to make it my goal this school year to teach our children the importance of giving back to the community we live in. We now have a branch of the East Texas Food Bank in Elkhart. It's housed at First Baptist Elkhart and distribution is on the first Thursday of each month. Beginning in September clients will actually be able to "shop" for the food items they can use. There are some items that are more expensive for our food bank to purchase so we are going to have monthly food drives at the elementary asking only for those items.
For the month of September our food item will be canned tuna. We will have a box in the gym where the students can bring their donation. I'll remind students also, (probably weekly) what the monthly donation is.
Thank you for helping to teach your child that "we are all here to help one another."
