Although we started and are responsible for the local Center Grove Blessing program, there is a NATIONAL blessings organization that is a 501c3.
They maintain our bank account and provide administrative support for local programs, like sending out the charitable donation letters. The money for the food comes from our fundraising efforts.
Thank you for helping us feed CG elementary school children in need on the weekends!
Meijer provides food at a discounted cost and ship it from their warehouse in MI to our local store, where we pick it up each Thursday. Every Thursday when school is in session, we have high school groups that volunteer to stuff bags with food.
We deliver the tubs of bags to each school Thursday evenings and the bags are handed out to the children Friday for the weekend.
The children who qualify for free lunch are eligible to participate in the program. The food consists of breakfast and lunch items that they could prepare themselves if they have to.
The groups that volunteer each week (high school students) get a lot out of participating- they understand there is a need and that they can help toward solving the problem. Volunteers include members of the cross country team, wrestling, National Honors Society, football, choir, etc.
We feed between 200-250 children weekly during the school year!
