Blessings Bags & Patriot Pantry

The KDS DAR School Blessings Bags program provides food sacks for schoolchildren who have limited access to food on the weekends. There are currently more than 275 KDS Elementary School students who receive the packs. These students must be sponsored each year at a cost of $100 per student.

A "Patriot Pantry" in each school ensures children have access to snacks and personal items such as hygiene and toiletry supplies while at school. The "Pantries" make it easy for students to discreetly obtain essentials to meet their everyday needs.
