FILL THE SACK 5K & Kids Fun Run
has been CANCELLED.
After considering the current pandemic situation and its effects on both runners and sponsors, canceling seemed the wisest course. School Fuel will continue to provide more than 1,000 hungry children with a weekend sack of food each Friday funded by generous local donors.
Help us receive $20,000 from the Carl C. Anderson Sr. and Marie Jo Anderson Charitable Foundation by donating now! When we can raise $20,000, the Foundation will match by providing another $20,000!
FOOD DONATION OPPORTUNITY
School Fuel is providing for 1,003 students this fall, grades K-7. At Christmas, spring break and the end of the year a supplemental sack of food is provided to help the children with the longer time away from two free meals each day at school. These supplemental sacks have an 18 oz jar of peanut butter, Ritz crackers (in sleeves) and a 1.5 oz Hershey bar. Donations of these items are needed now and can be delivered to the facility at 1331 Highway 123 most Thursday evenings between 5:00 and 7:30 pm or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org for pick up arrangements.
If you wish to make a monetary donation instead, mail a check to School Fuel at 102 Wonder World Drive, Suite 304, #120, San Marcos, TX 78666 or set up an automatic payment with your bank or credit union or PayPal. It costs just $18 per month to help a hungry student succeed at school.
School Fuel’s mission is to provide the "fuel" for a better learning environment by removing the pangs of hunger among the students in our classrooms.
Over 75% of our SMCISD students qualify for free or reduced meals at school. They go home on the weekends to little or no food at home. Statistics show that children who struggle with hunger at home perform at lower levels in school during the week.
School Fuel is currently serving 1003 students who have a high-risk of little or no food at home. Each week during the school year, the students receive a sack containing supplemental foods that they can easily open and serve themselves.
School Fuel is solely managed and operated by volunteers. Volunteers keep the operation costs low, which maximizes the number of children we are able to feed. Our operation is sustained by donations. $215 will provide weekend food for a child during the school year.
