To The Daily Sun,
Thanks to the efforts of so many in our community, the first year of Got Lunch! Inter-Lakes was a huge success!
The mission of Got Lunch! Inter-Lakes is to provide a grocery bag of nutritious luncheon products, packed and delivered each week of the summer recess, to the children of families within the Inter-Lakes School District that find themselves in need of a little helping hand.
The program acquired the funds to purchase the food through the heartwarming generosity of the local business community, faith and civic based organizations and individual sponsorships.
In cooperation with the Inter-Lakes School District and the dedicated custodial staff at the elementary school, each Monday morning a group of committed volunteers, packed grocery bags full of luncheon products for the week and delivered them throughout the townships that make up the Inter-Lakes School District. In total 6,155 lunches were delivered this summer!
On behalf of the board, please accept our deepest gratitude for your generosity, both financially and through your volunteer efforts.
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." Margaret Mead
