FOOD & BOOK PICK-UP, DELIVERY AND DISTRIBUTION AT SCHOOLS FOR TUESDAY 6/30
We are partnering with Brevard Public Schools to bridge the weekend food gap and continuing to feed children by providing our weekend food packets at the BPS specified locations listed below. In addition, United Way will be providing books to promote summer literacy. The Children's Hunger Project will be distributing these age appropriate books along with our weekend food packets.
GLOVES WILL BE PROVIDED, WE ASK YOU TO BRING YOUR OWN FACE COVERING/MASK AND HAND SANITIZER.
IMPORTANT: We recommend that the food and book distributors are separate people each using their own vehicle. If you are picking up food, we suggest you pick up only food and not books (and vice versa).
We also highly suggest that the book distributors bring an extra person (family member or friend) to assist with at with pick up and delivery at the school.
