Chapter members and Assisteens® of the Bay Area sprang into action with their Snack Attack Pack initiative!
Monthly volunteers gather to assemble nonperishable food items that are delivered to Texas City ISD for distribution to students who are experiencing homelessness. Two hundred eighty packages are filled with a microwavable meal, salty snack, sweet snack, juice box, napkin, and spoon. Delivery of the filled snack bags will occur monthly during the school year to fourteen schools in the district.
