This week, Gov. DeWine announced that all Ohio public schools will close for three weeks. Many students in our area depend on their local schools for free and reduced breakfast and lunches throughout the school year. The sudden and unexpected nature of this cancellation leaves many families struggling to find resources for food. Additionally, many hourly workers will be without income if their employer closes temporarily.
Our Ministry, Joshua’s Place is partnering with Kings, Mason, Lebanon, Little Miami and Deer Park school districts to help provide meals for students during this unexpected cancellation. Our goal is to collect, package and distribute Student Meal Kits to families that need them.
We will be collecting donations daily from 10:30am-12pm at the Deer Park Campus. Once collected, Joshua’s Place volunteers will inventory, pack and distribute the meal kits.
