Hand2Hand Ministries is a resource for children facing hunger and a way to provide children a greater opportunity to succeed academically, emotionally and physically with healthy food. As a school we would like to stock the pantry. Food collected will directly benefit students here at Quincy. Your student will bring home a paper bag with an attached note today where you will find a list of suggested items to return in the bag. The class that collects that most items will get an extra recess! All donations are due by Friday, April 28th.
