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.
Karing 4 Kidz will begin its fifth year helping our kids in the Fitchburg Public Elementary Schools. Last year the need was greater than ever before and I'm sure this year will be also. We are in great need so I'm asking for your help. For a $15 donation we can feed 5 kids. But wait there's more, get a free T-shirt that reads, "I ❤ the Burg". We can show our love for our city by showing some pride and also helping our less fortunate kids. Get yours today at Prime Thread, 140 Lunenburg St., Cozy Corner Café, 144 Lunenburg St or Putnam Street Lanes, 14 Putnam St., Fitchburg.
If you can or are willing to help us with a fundraiser please call 978-235-4786.
