All In for Kids – Kenmore Middle School

Students report that the healthy snacks are very beneficial as they are  hungry and unable to get a snack…. when snack is not available, productivity an connections between adults and youth diminish.

Mentor Room is for students to improve skills and strategies to learning, and develop positive relationships.  Your donations help support Mentor room at Kenmore Middle School last year by funding snack for healthy brain function and concentration.   However, snacks for this program are provided solely through donations like this one.   Without your help, this particular type of support goes away.

Thank you for feeding our students’ hunger for learning.

You can impact more students lives by being All in For Kids.
