I recently signed up to be part of the Abbott Nutrition Pack a Snack project. This project is so close to my heart. You have heard me talk about wanting to start awesome things in this community. You know I have a heart and passion for helping kids. You have also heard me talk about the kids around here being hungry. Oklahoma is now the 4th hungriest state in the US. The number of Oklahomans at risk of going hungry every day is astonishing to me, 600,000 people! One in four Oklahoma children struggles with hunger. I know for my community that number is much higher. We have to do something about this!
For this campaign I will be purchasing Abbott Nutrition Snack Packs and donating them to a local charity. The charity I have chosen is my local Salvation Army Backpack program. This program provides food for children for after school and weekends. It surprises me that most people do not know that there are children that only eat at school. The only food they eat for the day is whatever is provided at school. Thank God for programs that provide food for these children. It is so important for children to have nutritious food options and am glad the Backpack Program offers this.
I am very excited to be a part of this simple service project, you can find more info and other ideas on the Champions for Kids website. During the next few weeks I hope you will join me in this mission and donate to a local organization and help change the face of hunger!
