Geary-O’Hara Family Foundation
Hunger harms young minds and big futures all throughout the year. But in the summer when school is out and kids who rely on meals at school are forced to skip breakfast and lunch, hunger is devastating.
Schoolteachers see firsthand that kids who don’t get the food they need over the summer aren’t ready to learn on their first day of class. Our county is the 5th wealthiest in the nation, and our schools are top in the state. We can do better to feed all of our community’s children and prepare them for the fall.
AFAC is our community’s go-to organization for combating food insecurity. Your donation to AFAC’s Summer Hunger Challenge will feed nearly 3,500 children this summer–350 through AFAC’s summer backpack and snack program, and an additional 3,150 through AFAC’s weekly family distributions.Your generous gifts are paramount to our children’s futures. You can make a difference for Susie, for Grace, and for so many smart girls and boys who struggle against summer hunger. Please, make your donation today.
