Wow! We are blown away by the support of our fundraising campaign for KSD's Nutrition on the Weekends (KSD NOW) program. This initiative was launched in the spring to fight hunger in Kirkwood Schools where one out of every six students faces food insecurity.
Thank you to our families, staff members, and local service clubs such as the Kiwanis and the Optimist Club. A special thank to the Webster Groves Christian Church and our PTOs for their partnership. By working together, we surpassed our year one fundraising goal of $10,000 and raised approximately $14,000! The initial generosity of our school community will ensure at least 50 students receive a bag of nutritious food every Friday as well as provide stability for this vital program.
Now, it is time to celebrate our first milestone! Everyone is invited to the Kickoff Event and first packing party on Wednesday, August 28 at 6 p.m. at Webster Groves Christian Church, 1320 W Lockwood Ave, St. Louis, MO 63122. Together, we will celebrate the launch of this important initiative for our students.
Please consider donating to this worthy cause by donating online or send a check to Kirkwood School District, with KSD Now in the memo line, 11289 Manchester Road, Kirkwood, Missouri 63122.
We are also excited to announce our partnership with Generopolis, a new market place that turns products and services into cash for KSD NOW. Be sure to like and follow KSD social media platforms to receive more information.
Every dollar donated to KSD Nutrition on Weekends (NOW) will help provide a local child in need with healthy meals on the weekend.
