, volunteers come together to feed kids. “Most of us are moms from local schools who are helping out,” says Alie as she spreads wow butter across a slice of bread. “We support 4 schools in the area, the community association gives us the space and some donations, and @COBSMardaLoop
supports us too.” Since January of 2018, #volunteers
meet on Monday and Wednesday mornings to make lunches for 28 kids, set to make 4,200 lunches over this year.
“You go to a school, see the kids and they’re running around and happy, you can’t imagine that any of them have these deep problems behind them because they’re kids and they’re running around playing,” shares Alie. “Then you see the empty [lunch delivery] box and you realize you solved that problem for them, it opens your eyes to the reality of those happy kids all running around, there are problems that you can’t simply see and there is opportunity to help.” Read the full story and meet the volunteers feeding kids in Killarney-Glengarry at bb4ck.org.
