KILDARE — Kildare Public School (KPS) joined several other schools across the state recently when they received a donation from the Feed the Children charity, which included not just food items for needy families, but also school and cleaning supplies, which will be donated to families at the school who may benefit from them.

Presenting the items were Jana Lambring, Chelsea Wilks and Neese Simpson.

“We’re excited to learn that Kildare was picked to receive the supplies,” said KPS Superintendent-Principal Bruce Shelley. “We look forward to going through the supplies, and issuing them out.”
The donation was made Tuesday, Sept. 8, due in part to an overstock at Feed the Children’s warehouse, upon which they selected certain schools to receive the goods, including KPS.

“Feed the Children has a teacher store, and they also present backpacks for kids to take food home over the weekend,” Shelley said. “We were one of the schools they chose, and they brought pallets of items to our school.”
Food wasn’t the only things on the pallets, as they also including toiletries such as soap and shampoo, cleaning supplies like mops, as well as school supplies.

The school will distribute many of the items to the school’s families.

“These are things we can donate to families and send home with the children.” he said. “We’re set for the rest of the school year for cleaning, and food and school supplies. We can give them to families that need them.”
They also received a collection of children’s books for the students, which also will be distributed to the families, he said.
The school is happy to be the recipient of the donations and know they will be a big benefit to the families and students.

”We want to thank Feed the Children for their generous donation,” Shelley said.
