Phil Stover, Feed the Kids for Summer program co-chair, was happy for us to share the news about the group's progress.
"By all means encourage contributions and volunteering," said Stover. "The food bags cost nearly $5.00 each, so we are spending right at $3,500 a week and money is still needed."
Feed the Kids for Summer is designed to help supplement lunch and breakfast food for children by assisting Mansfield ISD area families to meet their grocery needs during the summer break from school. The food is kid friendly and does not require a stove or oven to prepare.
If you are interested in helping, you can consider volunteering. You can also a tax-deductible donation, by making checks out to, "Common Ground", memo FKFS and mail to - Common Ground, P.O. Box 1049, Mansfield, TX 76063.
For questions, contact FKFS Co-Chair, Phil Stover at 817-709-1174 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mansfield ISD is a partner with the Common Ground Network.
