A.B. Combs Magnet Elementary

A.B. Combs loves our community partnership with Inter-Faith Food Shuttle! This fundraiser helps support our students at our own school.

Resized backpacks

A.B. Combs Elementary will need 16 bags.  Pleae help us fund these bags for kids in need at our school!

A.B. Combs loves our community partnership with Inter-Faith Food Shuttle! We officially have the BackPack Buddies program to help families in our own school receive food for the weekend. This program is truly amazing! The BackPack Buddies program serves children who are food insecure, meaning they do not have "access at all times to enough food for an active, healthy life" (Anderson, 1990). BackPack Buddies targets students who access free & reduced-price lunches at school. Children are identified as "in need" by school counselors and site coordinators.

When students have access to better nutrition, they are able to focus better at school, have less behavioral issues, and have a better chance at improving their academic performance. The cost of food from the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle is $350 for each child for the year. Your donation of any amount is greatly appreciated and will have a real impact on our community right here at A.B. Combs.

With your help last year, we were able to give 16 children a backpack of food each week! We have a couple of Combs families that could benefit from this program this school year and we want to help!

Thank you for your continued support and love for the BackPack Buddies program!

Having a belly full of healthy food is absolutely crucial to anyone's ability to grow, function, and learn. Thank you to teachers who provide the priceless gift of education, and thank you to BackPack Buddies for helping children get the most out of that education! Thank you for giving love and support to our little ones.
