While school is in sessions these children are helped through the school’s lunch programs. During the holiday seasons there are many days of no school which for these children could mean no meals.

You shouldn’t feel guilty for eating your delicious Thanksgiving meal, but you could take a moment to help others who are not as fortunate. Here are a few simple ways to help.
