I am writing to ask for your assistance. New Providence Middle School could really use some help with their FUEL program.  They have 120 students who take home a backpack of food each weekend and they have community sponsorship for about 50 of those students. They have attempted to round up donations to feed the rest through their guidance department and PTO shops for those remaining students.

If you would consider spreading the word so that anyone who may feel led to help with food or money for food could contribute that would be appreciated.  Please contact Mrs. Laura Barnett if you are able to assist in this matter. I know many churches are helping out at different schools.  I know that Faith Outreach for example is already committed to help 125 kids weekly at Byrns Darden Elementary School. This request is going out to elected officials, business owners, churches and citizens alike. Please step up and help.

Please contact Mrs. Laura Barnett the school principal if you are able to step up to the plate.

God Bless and Merry Christmas

About Project F.U.E.L.

“Project F.U.E.L. is a food subsidization program designed to feed children whose only food source may be the food they receive at school. All across America, children are going without food every weekend. This means that for up to 67 hours each weekend, school aged children are going without food. Most of these children are on state assistance; however, the food is not getting to the kids.

Project F.U.E.L. helps these children by gathering specific foods and placing them into grocery bags which are delivered to the schools and placed directly into the children’s back packs. These children are selected by the schools, not based on their family income, but on the signs of hunger.”
