Summer can be a time of great risk for many children in terms of hunger. It has been reported by Stow-Munroe Falls school personnel that when school starts in the fall they can tell which children have had a summer of reliable eating versus a summer of uncertainty. To help address this concern again this summer Bulldog Bags Inc. will make Bulldog Boxes available to families whose children are eligible for the free and reduced meal program. Bulldog Boxes, which have 10 meals/snacks in family-size portions, help families stretch their budgets when the children are home for all meals. Families must preregister for Bulldog Boxes, which will be distributed one time a month in June, July and August. The Bulldog Box program will be housed in the First Christian Church and both packing and distribution will take place there. Eligible families can register at http://www.bulldogbags.org/summer-program-bulldog-boxes/
Bulldog Bags Inc. is an all-volunteer managed cooperative effort between the community and schools; it is funded completely by community donations. For more information, visit the website, www.bulldogbags.org, or the Facebook page, Bulldog Bags Inc., or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Donations may be made to Bulldog Bags Inc. online or mailed to Bulldog Bags Inc., Box 1475, Stow 44224.
