Opportunities for Kindness

Snacks for underserved children

We have several students each week in our primary building who are hungry and who do not have snacks during the day. We keep a supply in the office and the teachers know who to send for a snack.  We would like 2 of each item:

Cheez-It Cheese Crackers (40 Pouches)

Goldfish Crackers Big Smiles Variety Pack with Cheddar, Colors, and Pretzels, (30 Ct)

GoGo squeeZ Fruit on the Go, Apple Apple (Pack of 48), Unsweetened, Gluten Free Pouches

RITZ Cheese Sandwich Crackers, 48 Snack Packs per box

The above listings are links from Amazon. Click on the listings above to see the items requested.  You may certainly order from there and have delivered, but if easier and more cost effective, snacks from Sam's, Costco, Walmart or wherever you shop, would be wonderful. Quantities requested above (two of each listing) is just the amount the building is hoping for. If shopping and dropping off items, the Drop off locations will display after you click ' I Can Help".

If you ship, please send to: Anne Stevens 4982 Lake Breeze Lane. Maumee OH. 43537. Delivery requested before October 5 please. I am 7 minutes from the school and happy to deliver.

Whether you shop and drop off, or order and ship, PLEASE click the 'I can Help" button and add a note of what you have ordered, or what you hope to shop for, so we have an idea of number of items donated and when to close the request. THANK YOU!!!!
