The Invisible Epidemic

Childhood Hunger!  Our schools are telling us the need is tremendous. Trying to teach a child who hasn't eaten all weekend is next to impossible. They come to school Monday morning and can't concentrate, they can't focus. No child should have to go hungry but it happens every day. I look forward to Fridays as it is my favorite day of the week, it brings me so much joy knowing the kids get so excited when they get their food and are OK for the weekend.  We now have more kids then we ever had and I cannot say, "NO MORE".  As the holidays are quickly approaching please consider one more gift. This may be the greatest gift of all, a gift given to someone who cannot give back. There are 27 weeks left in the school year. Please consider sponsoring a child for $69.00, the balance of the school year which will provide food over the weekend for a child, and joy for you.

Thank You, Lanni Orchards

It's That Time Again


We started the school year with more kidz then ever before. If anyone could consider sponsoring a child for the entire school year for $100.00, it would be a great help. Imagine having breakfast Saturday morning and knowing a child is also because of you! WOW and not just one day or weekend but the hole 38 week school year. If that's not's possible any donation no matter how small will help so much. Girl Scout/Boy scout troops, local community clubs or church groups, please help us fundraise or hold a food drive. It is extremely valuable to the children in our community.  THANK YOU!


Please send to:
Karing 4 Kidz

Donations should be made out to:

Schools Out

The school year has come to an end and with that I hope everyone has a happy summer.  I would like to thank everyone who help me in any way make this possible. We started out with 65 kids in September and ended with 129 kids. The children we help are in real need, they are identify by teachers and given to the guidance counselor.  The cost of each child is about $3.00 and that means a lot of coupons, fundraising and food drives. I would like to give a special THANK YOU to Dunkin Donuts and Lanni Orchards for donating one food item for each child for the entire school year. This summer I will be working on ways to fundraise, if anyone has any ideas please e-mail me at  kiraandreucci@hotmail.com THANK YOU for helping me help others...Kira.
