The staff and students of Pleasant Ridge Elementary School in Charlestown are reaching out to the community for a little help.
They are looking to begin a program that will help feed the students over the weekend when school in not in session. The program “Blessings in a Backpack” is designed to feed elementary school children whose families qualify for the federal free and reduced meal program and may not have any or enough food on the weekends. When there is a Friday or Monday holiday, students may have to go as many as three and a half days with little or nothing to eat.
Better test scores, improved reading skills, positive behavior, improved health and increased attendance have all been attributed to the success of the Blessings in a Backpack program.
Currently $80 feeds one child in the program for an entire school year. Every Friday, students receive their backpacks with staples that require little to no preparation. They return with their backpacks on Monday ready to learn.
A teacher in Orlando, Florida wrote, regarding the program: “This program really benefits our students and has improved their lives. Our test scores show an increase in all of our children’s ability to write, read and compute.”
The Blessings in a Backpack program was founded by Stan Curtis. The program’s motto is “Feeding the Future of America, One School at a Time.” It is a 501(c) non-profit organization currently feeding over 18,000 students in 16 states.
Jonathan Jennings Elementary School became the first school in Clark County to participate in the program earlier this year.
The program at Pleasant Ridge Elementary will begin with 20 students.
If you would like to make a donation to help fund the
Blessings in a Backpack program at Pleasant Ridge Elementary please send your donation, checks made payable to Blessings in a Backpack, to Pleasant Ridge Elementary, c/o Michelle Dyer, 1250 Monroe Street, Charlestown, IN 47111.
