The 2016 school year has begun at SRCS, and Casa de Luz, and we are getting ready. We need to order the new back packs, and are getting excited about this school year. Their are 47 children enrolled at SRCS and 43 at Casa de Luz, and we are looking forward to this opportunity to provide these children and their families with food to fill their back packs each week! We also would like to provide a meal at least once a month.
The cost for the back packs, to have the kids names put on them is around $400.
The cost is $260.00 a child, per year, which is $5.00, per back pack, per child, each week, for 52 weeks. That consists of non-perishable food items such as, rice, beans, flour, cornmeal, cooking oil, and other things, sometimes, pasta, with tomato sauce, boxes of mac n cheese, oatmeal, among other things. We also try to add items such at tooth paste, deodorant, and soap as well. We try to mix it up every week.
