APSF Launches the Auburn Pantry Project
The Auburn Pantry Project is a new area of support under our Healthy Choices grant.
Through this project, APSF will provide each elementary school applicant a periodic stipend to be used to acquire various supplies including:
- Food (fresh or packaged) to supplement Food to Go, mid-morning snacks, before or after school activities, or other special needs,
- Hygiene items (toothpaste/brushes, shampoo/conditioner, deodorant, feminine hygiene, diapers, underclothing, lice kits, etc.),
- Other basic related supplies, etc.
A big THANK YOU to Hop Jack's restaurant in Lakeland Hills for helping us get this project started.
