Satanta FCCLA Sponsors Summer Food Donation Program
The Satanta chapter of FCCLA is proud to provide the schools of USD 507, Satanta, with a Care Closet stocked with food and toiletries for students in need. As this school year drew to a close, Care Closet organizer Ella Burrows determined that it was time to clear out this year’s stock of donated food items by hosting a summer food giveaway.
Notes were sent home with all Satanta students notifying families in the community of the opportunity to take home a box of food. Twelve families reached out for assistance. Boxes were packed with items from the Care Closets, which will be restocked in fall, and distributed on Thursday, May 16. Due to a generous donation of memorial monies given to the Care Closets by the family and friends of the late JoAnn Sigman, Burrows was also able to add a gift certificate to Satanta Grocery to each of the boxes.
This assistance is intended to help bridge the gap between school ending on May 16 and the Summer Lunch Program beginning on May 28. Second summer food distribution will follow the end of the Summer Lunch Program, which will come to an end on July 26. Details on this second food giveaway program will be provided in July.
