Blessings in a Backpack Southwest Florida Chapter has received a $20,000 donation from Suncoast Credit Union that will help provide weekend meals for students at Tice Elementary School in Fort Myers.
“We are so fortunate to have businesses that continue to support Blessings in a Backpack and our mission to help local children,” said Cecilia St. Arnold, Blessings in a Backpack.
Suncoast Credit Union Foundation’s goal is to promote the education, health, and emotional well-being of children through scholarships and contributions to public schools, medical research and development,family support organizations, and other charitable programs that directly benefit children.
“Donations to Blessings in a Backpack help to feed children who aren’t always sure where their next meal will come from. When they have food over the weekend, they can come to school Monday morning and focus on learning rather than an empty stomach,” Ms. St. Arnold said. “We are able to provide this assistance because of the help and participation of wonderful local businesses in our community.”
