Mobilizes communities to provide food on the weekends to children
Statistics as of: 2/20
CURRENT UPDATE ON COVID-19 RESPONSE
Weekend Survival Kits (WSK) is continuing to monitor how to best deliver critical food services to the children and families we serve during this uncertain time. While state legislators approved the extension for the Stay Home, Stay Safe order, packing sessions have been suspended at the Hill Center (NorthWest Initiatives), Delta Dental of Michigan, Emergent BioSolutions, Okemos Community Church and Detroit. WSK is working very closely with the Greater Lansing Food Bank to make sure that our participants are being served and we have been reassured that the kids in the communities we serve are receiving much needed food through the local food pantries. WSK is committed to keeping our volunteers, delivery drivers, and the families we serve SAFE.
What we do know is that unemployment is on the RISE, and families will need food support MORE THAN EVER. As we prepare for an increase in participants, this summer and into the 2020-2021 school year, WSK is incredibly thankful for any gift that you can provide.

IMPACT REPORT Released for Review
As we closed the books on 2018, our seventh year of service to families who are experiencing food insecurity through mostly elementary schools in five counties, we are filled with gratitude. It is a deep and enduring gratitude for all the support we have received both from donors and volunteers. This report is to help you understand the impact of the work we do and to understand the continuing needs of school children in our area. Growth has been exhilarating, challenging and sometimes sobering. Especially sobering when we realize that the increase in schools and individual children represents thousands of stories of heroism, courage, and heartbreak which we will never be able to share. By its nature, due to confidentiality promises, we do not often get to hear about the challenges which qualify families to participate in this program…
