Food for Kids During the Winter Break: Columbus nonprofits enroll in schools

As Christmas approaches, many residents in the area begin to prepare their holiday dinners by going on trips to the grocery store and storing their refrigerators.

But some families do not want enough food for Christmas – or for the two weeks their children are out of school during the winter holidays.

This is where students and staff at Greensview Elementary School stepped in.

Three fourth-graders at Upper Arlington School, with the help of Principal Jason Wulf, collected $ 7,000 worth of food and materials for the Columbus Department of After-School All-Stars.

Partnership with after-school All-Stars, which helps families in need

The nonprofit, which offers free after-school programs for children living in neighborhoods with a lack of resources, recently held a Winter Break Comfort Bag Drive for families in need at Indian Meadows Apartments on the city’s South Side and six Columbus schools.
