Spring Break is almost here for many Virginia Beach area schools which means an entire week off. But not everyone looks forward to these extended breaks. In fact, there are many students in our area who rely on school meals and may not get enough to eat on the weekends or during school breaks.
This is why The Memory Center, Virginia Beach supports the “Beach Bags for Kids” program to help our local community and provide meals for kids who need them.
The Memory Center invites you to help us fill as many Beach Bags for Kids as possible by donating non-perishable food items. Suggestions include:
- Individual-sized cereal boxes or oatmeal
- 8oz. servings of shelf-stable milk
- Individual-sized meals (ravioli, spaghetti & meatballs, macaroni & cheese, etc.)
- 4 oz. fruit cups and/or 100% juice boxes
- Snack items (granola bars, raisins, pretzels, etc.)
You can drop off donations at The Memory Center, Virginia Beach anytime during our food drive March 27 – April 6, 2017. Donation boxes will be set up in the lobby, just drop by anytime between 9am-5pm any day of the week. After April 6th The Memory Center staff and residents will then assemble and deliver all the Beach Bags to schools in our local community.
Thank you in advance for your participation and support, we look forward to sharing your donations with the kids in the Virginia Beach area.
