Lewisville-based Christian Community Action (CCA) is asking for the public’s assistance this summer in helping to support the organization’s annual Kids Eat Free and Back-to-School programs.
According to Maureen Cummings, director of food and seasonal programs, CCA feeds 1,030 meals to underprivileged children per day, and is on target to serve 50,000 lunches this summer alone.
CCA implemented the program 30 years ago and now serves children at 15 different sites with 29 churches participating in the program.
In an effort to help prepare students for the upcoming school year, CCA partners with the community to offer their annual Back-to-School Program to supply students with the proper tools to do their best in the classroom.
Donations help with the cost of new clothing, new shoes, and new backpacks. A donation of $125 will support one student and give them two new outfits, socks and underwear, new shoes, and a new backpack.
Another way to help with CCA’s Back-to-School Program is to volunteer at the Back-to-School Store at CCA’s Lewisville campus, at area mall’s giving trees, or by coordinating a local clothing drive.
