From November 11-22, students, staff, and parents were encouraged to bring in non-perishable food items to Step Up Schools in Mesa. An outstanding 2,200 lbs. of food was collected, which was 100 lbs. more than 2018 and will provide more than 1,800 meals to people who are facing hunger! Our friends from S&M Moving Systems volunteered to help by delivering all the donations.
"Sixty families at Step Up Schools in Mesa will have full Thanksgiving meals and food to stock their pantries," said Kelsie Hickman from EduPrize Schools. "We couldn’t have done it without your help!"
Nearly 980,000 people in Arizona are food insecure, including 1 in 5 children. Every donation helps make a difference. Thank you EduPrize Schools and S&M Moving Systems for doing your part!
