This Memorial Day, over 150 children from Growing Futures Early Education Center will go home for an extended weekend. Sadly, a great number of those children will go hungry until they return to school. To help, the Leadership Northeast Class of 2017 has partnered with Hy-Vee to host a food drive.
On, May 20th from 10:00 am – 3:00 pm volunteers from the Leadership Northeast program will be at Hy-Vee in Mission collecting non-perishable food donations for the children at Growing Futures. Shoppers are encouraged to stop by Hy-Vee’s Mission store at 6655 Martway Street and pick up a few extra donation items during regular grocery shopping.
The Leadership Northeast Class of 2017 is proud to serve our community by helping to provide a healthy head start for the next generations NEJC leaders!
