KINDS

KINDS is generated from the hearts of teachers at TLCA Abilene. Our goal is to help meet the basic needs of the students and families of TLCA Abilene.
 
Our school serves nearly 500 students ranging from kindergarten through eighth grade. We love our kids and realize when basic needs are not being met, learning will not happen. In order to serve the whole child, we offer services to help meet the needs of each student.
Services we currently offer:
weekend food bags
hygiene items
clothing items

Each Friday afternoon we have 67 students come to get a bag of food to help tide them over until school breakfast Monday morning. 
In each bag we put at least:
one vegetable
one fruit
two snacks (goldfish, chips, granola bars, etc)
two breakfast items (cereal, pop-tarts, oatmeal)
two meals (sandwiches, Spagettios, etc)
 
Hygiene items:
toothbrushes
toothpaste
shampoo
conditioner
soap
laundry detergent
 
Clothing Items:
jackets
socks
shoes
 
Before longer breaks, we gather bigger boxes of food to send to each family. We currently serve 35 families.
 Items in each box are:
Box of Cereal
Large jar of peanut butter
Large jar of jelly
spaghetti sauce
spaghetti
box of macaroni and cheese
Box of mashed potatoes
pack of ramen noodles
spagettios
box of granola bars
box of pop tarts
fresh fruit (apples, bananas, oranges)
canned fruit
 
The district does not fund this program. Each item we are able to give to our students is from a donation. We have a small pantry on campus so we can accept canned food and non-perishable items, hygiene items and clothes. At this point, monetary donations are used solely for food items. 
Donations may be brought to the school or made at https://squareup.com/store/kinds
