IN THEIR OWN WORDS



The following have been given to us by schools from the children where they attend. These notes fill our hearts with inspiration to do more.


Dear kidsPACK
I just want to thank you for giving me some snacks. That really helps me a lot because my mom tells me to make my own food and she forgets to buy food for me and my brother and sisters. We only like a little bit of food. I hope you get a thank you from thousands of school [kids]. I will pray for you.

Dear kidsPACK
Thank you for making the kidsPACK. It [has] changed my life ever since you made the kidsPACK. On weekend days I’m not hungry any more. Thanks again.

Dear kidsPACK
Thank you for bringing the kids packs to us for students who really need it. I have 2 brothers and 1 sister who get it every Friday. Thanks again.

Dear kidsPACK
Thank you. This has helped me a lot. At night, I will eat a snack from it. I hope that this will help my little sister so she can have food so she can be happy.

Dear kidsPACK
I know it takes a long time to put all the food in the backpacks but thank you. I would love to help you but I know I can’t because I am too small.

Dear kidsPACK
I want to tell you something… thank you for the food and the backpack. I am so happy because I have food in my house. I want to keep my backpack forever.

Dear kidsPACK
The backpack is so good because sometimes some kids don’t have enough money to buy food. Every Friday we get it to last to Monday. I like the food that is inside.

Dear kidsPACK
I don’t eat as much as I want to because I leave some for my Grandma. Sometimes she doesn’t have enough money to buy food for us. I just feel sad sometimes.

Dear kidsPACK
Thank you for the backpack. It is blue. My teacher gave it to me. She said it was for when I didn’t have food at home. My favorite are the PopTarts and the beefaroni.
