Gearing Up for Giving - Join the EDPA Las Vegas Chapter in Giving Back to Our Community in the Whitney Elementary School Charity Drive
Whitney Elementary School services some of the neediest students in the Clark County School District, and they could use OUR HELP! 100% of their students receivefree and reduced lunch with the majority of their students living in shelters and daily/weekly housing.
In an effort to ensure that the students were not going hungry outside of school hours, the teachers and staff at Whitney Elementary, lead by their wonderful Principal Sherrie Gahn, started a Food Pantry. The Food Pantry provides 250 "food bags" each week to students and their families. These food bags are vital for these families in making ends meet. Through the Food Pantry, the school also provides basic clothing to their students.
HOW CAN WE HELP??
We have a list of Food items that the Food Pantry at Whitney Elementary is in need of to keep their weekly commitments to their families. In addition, they will also be providing food bags during the Holiday Breaks, 1 week at Thanksgiving and 2 weeks at Christmas.
Some of the items they need are:
- Individual pop-top Ravioli/Beanie Weenies/Chili/Stew
- Top Ramen Soup
- Individual Fruit Cup, Applesauce
- Water, Capri Sun, Juice and Milk Boxes
