Be a part of Beach Bag Day, March 22, 2012, from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Parent Connection, in partnership with WTKR, is holding a Beach Bags Day!
Please “Fill a Beach Bag and Feed a Beach Child!
Did you know that there are children right here in Virginia Beach who do not have enough to eat? It’s hard to believe, but it’s true. This is especially the case during weekends and school vacations when children cannot take advantage of available school breakfasts and lunches.
Fortunately, Virginia Beach City Public Schools Parent Connection is helping to address this critical need through the Beach Bags program. Beach Bags provides needy students with necessary food items to eat over the weekend, and the school division has distributed more than 11,200 bags since the program began in 2010.
We are asking for help from schools and the community—here’s how to get involved! You can drop off any of the food items listed on this page at Town Center, in front of the Sandler Center on March 22. Virginia Beach Schools Education Foundation will also take tax deductible donations at www.vbef.org
Schools, PTA’s, parents, and community members can also “pack a Beach Bag” by assembling the ten items listed below in a paper or plastic (unsealed) bag and delivering them to the Sandler Center on March 22. People can even help by simply bringing any of the food items listed below for drop off on March 22—we will take care of the rest! For more information, and other ways to help, call 263-1936.
Each Beach Bag Contains:
2 - individual cereal boxes - small, individual sized boxes or bowls
2 - 8 oz shelf stable milk - individual cartons (juice box sized)
2 - shelf-stable main course items - ravioli, spaghetti & meatballs, beef stew, chicken & dumplings, tuna/chunk chicken, tuna helper, macaroni & cheese, chunky soups, peanut butter & crackers
