My name is Kira Andreucci. For my 11th birthday I asked for money to start Karing 4 Kidz, a project to help less fortunate children with kidpacks containing nonperishable, nutritious food items for the weekend. I made kidpacks for 10 kids to take home on Fridays and delivered them each week with the help of my parents. This is my eighth year with 5 Fitchburg elementary schools and 10 volunteers helping 272 children! I'm a chapter of Blessings in a Backpack a 501c3 nonprofit organization.
I would like to give special thanks to Dunkin Donuts for sponsoring a food item for the entire school year. Christ Church for their donation of the special Christmas Offering and Bemis Associates. We are now feeding over 70 children in three schools to date.
