Sheridan Story Helps Fight Childhood Hunger

If your family is in need of a little extra food over the weekend, please consider participating in the Sheridan Story.   At the end of every week,  volunteers will put a small bag of non-perishable food in your child's locker for the weekend.  Volunteers will only be given locker numbers and not the identity of families participating.  Students should be able to put food into his/her backpack to carry home easily and discreetly.  Each bag of food contains fruit and vegetables and provides nutritious, substantive meals for kids to eat at home. A sample bag from our inventory includes the following items: a can of pears, a bag of rice, a can of green beans, a can of tuna, a bag of pasta, and a can of chicken noodle soup.  Only school administration will see the names in order to run locker numbers.  If you have any questions, please contact your child's principal, guidance counselor or social worker.    THE FIRST DISTRIBUTION WILL AT THE END OF SEPTEMBER.  If you have more than one child in the program, please consider signing up each child.  Sign up here or by contacting Mrs.Thayer or Mrs.Larson.
