JOYNER ELEMENTARY BACKPACK BUDDIES 2016-17
Joyner Elementary Backpack Buddies 2016-17
Thanks to all who gave via this webpage last year! We have reset our goal for the 2016-17 school year, and are hoping we can count on your support again.
Hello friends & family of J.Y. Joyner Elementary! Thank you for visiting our site. I hope you will take a moment to consider supporting the BackPack Buddies Program at our school. As you may know, this program allows a group of our students to take home basic food items on Friday afternoons. These children receive breakfast and lunch at school, but do not necessarily have access to nutritious foods on the weekend.
With better nutrition, children are able to focus more at school, have less behavioral issues, and have a better chance at improving their academic performance. We have 16 students in the program this year. The cost of food from the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle is $350 for each child for the year. Your donation of any amount is greatly appreciated and will have a real impact on our community right here at Joyner.
We are off to a great start with $1,000 already donated!
We need to have all donations by the first day of school. THANK YOU and best wishes for a fantastic school year!
