After hearing about the great numbers of local homeless children in Broward County, A Heart Like His Foundation decided to tackle the problem by launching a new program called Friday Kid's Pak.
This new program is designed to feed homeless / at risk children over the weekend when school meals are not available. These children have no control over their homelessness or family situation – they are innocent in their circumstances. These at risk children are fed in school during the week, however many leave school on Friday not knowing if they will eat a meal before returning to school on Monday.
Our goal is to provide these children a Friday Kid's Pak containing: 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, 2 snacks, 2 fruit cups, 2 milk boxes and 2 juice boxes. The children will receive their Friday Kid's Pak from a school administrator every Friday during the school year.
To make this happen, we need help from the community. We are looking for churches, clubs, organizations, and local business to get involved. Please consider hosting a food drive, making a monetary donation, or donating warehouse space which would allow us to allocate more money on collecting and distributing food to more children.
