Shir Tikvah is proud to announce that we have agreed to partner with The Sheridan Story, Mt. Olivet Lutheran Church and Washburn High School in an effort to help bridge the weekend food gap for some of the students at Washburn High School. We will be recruiting volunteers to help with this effort and also fundraising on a yearly basis to help support this wonderful program. Read more
There are an estimated 100,000 kids in the Twin Cities living with food insecurities. The Sheridan Story has built a community oriented program that helps those most in need receive additional food for the weekends when free or reduced meals are not available. At the end of 2013, The Sheridan Story approached both Mt. Olivet and Shir Tikvah, neighbors to Washburn High School, to create a partnership to sponsor a program at Washburn High School. Both communities eagerly responded.
Starting at the end of January, Shir Tikvah and Mount Olivet will begin to supply volunteer hours once a week at Washburn. The volunteers, will help pass out food to the participating students, giving them additional supplements during the weekend when they do not have access to the free or reduced meals through the school. Shir Tikvah and Mt. Olivet will also need to raise the necessary funds to support this program. All donations of any amount are welcome. Please donate to The Sheridan Story from the Shir Tikvah Community, or send a check to Shir Tikvah for the Sheridan Project.
We are all very excited about building this new partnership with Mount Olivet and growing our community connection through a very wonderful program. If you wish to learn more about how to get involved or how to donate the program, please contact Rebecca Skoler at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at 612-207-0140.
