    Kids Against Hunger Campaign

    DES Kids Against Hunger

    Each year, our Student Council sponsors a philanthropy project to give back to our global community.  This year, the children have selected Kids Against Hunger.  The mission of this organization is to significantly reduce the number of starving children in the United States and throughout the world.  Meals are shipped to over 60 countries through partnerships with humanitarian organizations worldwide.  
    On Tuesday, November 29th, students in grades DK-5 were presented with the Kids Against Hunger project.
    Meals will be packaged on Thursday, May 25th.   DK-1 grade students will decorate bags and students in grades 2-5 will package food.  To purchase the food, a $5 donation per child will greatly assist.  Please visit Kids Against Hunger for more information.  Thank you!
