End of Summer Meal Train Needs!
Posted 08/15/2019 by Carly Manijak of The HALO Foundation
Hey there! Thanks so much for being part of our HALO family.
We had an amazing summer here, we saw 68 new kiddos in the month of July and hosted 28 workshops. So, we are needing to restock some of our snack supplies -- our kiddos love gummy fruit snacks, individually wrapped packs of chips, and microwaveable meals such as ramen noodles that they can take with them when needed.
We're also excited to have 5 weekly workshops plus one bi-weekly workshop on our schedule for the fall! That means lots of new opportunities to help us make sure our at-risk kiddos are getting a nice meal while they're with us. As you will see on the schedule, we have opportunities to bring dinner (or a nice snack) Monday and Wednesday evenings, and opportunities to bring breakfast every other Thursday.
Thank you for helping us provide the foundation of a family for our youth -- your generosity means the world to them and to us. Please email Alayna Howard with any questions.
Summer Workshops Starting!

Hello! Thank you for being part of the HALO Meal Train. We have now updated our calendar with our needs for this summer. We have a fun summer planned at HALO with a lot of new programming and the addition of several workshops. We'd like to provide snacks at our Creative Writing classes (Monday evenings) and our Art & Life Skills workshops (Monday and Wednesday evenings), as well as breakfast for our Improv classes (Thursday mornings), plus breakfast and lunch during our four-session Sewing Workshop in July. We appreciate people like you who make sure our children don't have to deal with the stress of hunger while they're healing with us. Thank you for all you do to help one more child spend one less day alone.

Good Afternoon Everyone,
Just a quick April/May update on upcoming meal opportunities. Monday and Wednesday we have local shelters come in during the evening (6-7:30 pm) to participate in certain art activities. We are simply looking for snacks to provide these kiddos with. On Thursdays (before 9am) we are looking for volunteers to bring in healthy breakfast options for our alternative high school, FairFax. HALO appreciates all your help and anticipate working with you soon!
Fairfax Breakfast for March

During the month of March we are lucky to have Fairfax with us on the 21st and 28th. It would be greatly appreciated for anyone to volunteer their time to bring the breakfast on either of those days before 9am. Thank you for your time.
