Tote Me Home - Food for Kids!

Project Report | Jun 8, 2020
The Virus will not defeat us!

By Kristine Cleland | Board President

Our Tote Me Home program has been adjusted due to the restrictions that the COVID 19 virus has placed upon us.  We have partnered with the HHH Summer Camp program during the summer vacation where we passed out Tote Me Home bags to our most vulnerable kids.  HHH has been canceled due to the virus.  No camp for the kids!  We have contacted our HHH kids that received Tote Me Home in the past years to come up on Friday at St. John UCC Church to receive a bag per child for the weekend.  Our whole community has been working hard to make sure no one goes hungry.  From the Collinsville Food Pantry feeding people from other communities whose Pantries have closed.  Our School District who keep providing sack lunches to kids on through June.  To individuals who make sure the Blessing Boxes are well stocked with food and toiletries.  To our Churches who are closed to their Congregations but allow us some space to store the Tote Me Home food and let us distribute them on their property.  We will get through this together.  Please keep supporting us in the unprecedented time. Thank you!
