Girls on the Run will be collecting canned food for Windsor Park Elementary. Windsor Park is a Title 1 school located in Charlotte with over 30 homeless children and 150 families in immediate need of food. The school recently created a food pantry and are in need of supplies to fill it. You can learn more about their cause here.

The following items are needed:                                 

  • Instant mac and cheese
  • Tuna/Chicken canned                 
  • Powdered milk
  • Soups                                                           
  • Apple sauce
  • Canned veggies                                           
  • Canned fruit
  • Ramen Noodles                                            
  • Pasta and sauce
  • Oatmeal packets                                           
  • Bags of beans
  • Small individual boxes of cereal                 
  • Rice
  • Protein/breakfast bars

Please consider donating personal care items for men, women and children as these can add up and become a financial burden on families as well. 

There will be a box in the foyer at school starting Monday November 25th and we will collect items up until December 16th. If you have any questions or want to donate a large amount of items please feel free to contact Cindy Davis.
