Ascension Leadership Academy in San Diego has chosen the San Diego Food Bank’s Food 4 Kids Backpack Program as their Community Service Project, because local children served by the program are the San Diego community’s next generation.
DID YOU KNOW?
The Food 4 Kids Backpack Program, established in 2006, provides weekend food-filled backpacks to elementary school children living in poverty who receive free school meals Monday through Friday, but face hunger over the weekends. Currently, the program serves 2,800 students at 58 elementary schools in 14 districts.
Ascension Leadership Academy provides premiere leadership development and transformational training that supports people in becoming powerful leaders in every aspect of their lives.
Their goal is to raise $150,000 by October 30th, 2019, which will feed 750 children for one entire school year! Each child will receive a weekend backpack filled with food for 36 weekends!
