The Osceola/South Mississippi County Chamber of Commerce Education Committee, with the encouraged support of area businesses, organizations, and individuals in our communities, hopes to show our collective support of local students by helping alleviate this burden and ensuring they have snacks as a welcome break from the tedium of testing.
The Chamber will collect donations now through March 30, and will deliver the items to each respective school district. Both purchased donations of snacks or drinks and monetary donations with which to buy them will be accepted.
If you wish to donate items, all quantities will be helpful, as items can be mixed and matched through the grades and classes to give variety. Suggested snacks include any reasonably healthy, individually wrapped and/or portioned food and drinks, such as:
- Juice boxes
- Capri sun pouches
- Cereal bars
- Granola bars
- Fruit snacks
- Healthy snack cakes
- Peanut butter crackers
- Bananas, apples, or oranges
- (please refrain from donating chocolate)
We are planning two drop off days, one on March 4 and another on April 2, to ensure both product freshness and ease of delivery. We will make purchases with any monetary donations within a few days prior to each respective drop off date above.
For more information or to drop off items or monetary support to purchase items, please feel free to contact the Chamber at 870-563-2281, firstname.lastname@example.org, or stop by the office at 116 N Maple, Osceola.
Both Osceola and Rivercrest School Districts are proud members of the Osceola/South Mississippi County Chamber of Commerce.
