350lbs of food collected at Arbor Heights Elementary during Random Acts of Kindness week
During Random Acts of Kindness Week February 10 – 14 the staff and families of Arbor Heights Elementary participated in a week-long food drive, which brought in 350 pounds, to support the West Seattle Food Bank’s new “Backpack” Program.
The “Backpack” program, in its infancy, assists school age children who are at risk of being hungry throughout the weekend by assembling grocery bags of kid friendly healthy and nutritious food and distributing them through their school, one of which is Arbor Heights Elementary.
The West Seattle Food Bank wants to thank Rosslyn Shea at Arbor Heights for organizing this wonderful food drive and to remind any family participating in the 100th Day of School food drive at their school to check in with their organizer and get our wishlist to support the “Backpack” program.
