Commitment to Community: Feeding the hungry

Would you consider a job where the work never ends? Week in and week out the demands are consistent without rest or reprieve. When that consistency wavers, it is because demand has increased. There are no checkpoints; there is no sense of completion. And get this: there Such is the life of Chugiak-Eagle River Food Pantry director Lynn Kile. For the past three years, Kile has overseen the distribution of 20,000 pounds of food per month to local families in need, adding up to 245,000 pounds so far in 2017 alone.

I Would Join The PTA, But…

In the back of my mind I wondered - isn’t the school supposed to provide all this? Do they just not know how to manage their resources? Maybe, it is different at other schools.When the military moved us, we started a new school. New school, new PTA - this school will have it together, and I will get my casual PTA lunches!Again, school district resource shortfalls left classrooms and teachers in need. So, I went to work. Along with other parents, we turned to the community for the necessary resources for students to have a productive and meaningful school year.
