Thanks to generous givers (you!), we successfully fund-raised to provide healthy food for our Beyond Awesome student community for August.
We welcome students through our doors at least twice every week and run almost 52 weeks consecutively, without a break. Many of the youth who regularly join our program do not have proper or regular meals during the week and most come into class extremely hungry, unable to focus or interact well with their peers.
With your support, we can make sure that every student has access to wholesome, nutritious food at our Beyond Awesome HQ. Some examples of items we make available in abundance to each and every student: peanut butter sandwiches, cheese sandwiches, oatmeal biscuits, wholemeal bread, raisins and fresh fruit such as apples, bananas, grapes, watermelons. Each student does not just receive one sandwich. He/she is able to take as many sandwiches they would like on the condition that they finish everything and do not waste. For some students, this means eating 5-7 sandwiches in one sitting. For others, it's eating as many bananas as they love!
Our goal is to fundraise $350 for the month of September* which will provide quality, healthy and nutritious food + snacks that will enable us not only to keep hunger out the door but to guide students towards healthier food choices.
Every dollar means a lot, even if it's just a few dollars. Collectively, we're excited that we can all come together to raise $350 (Singapore Dollars) to ensure our students leave our classrooms not only with full hearts, but happy bellies!
