We’re Multiplying Our Impact on Child Hunger in Fall 2014
Summer is or will soon be officially over for students across the Twin Cities. The season flew by – it seems like just yesterday the snow was melting!
We at The Sheridan Story were very busy this summer moving into our new warehouse, securing a new food-hauling trailer (thank you, Cargill!), and gearing up for this coming school year.
And what a school year it’s going to be!
Together with our partners and community sponsors, The Sheridan Story will be serving kids in 25 schools across the Twin Cities this fall! That’s almost double the 13 schools in which we were active in Spring 2014. When those 25 schools are fully up and running, we expect to be reaching some 1,700 kids weekly – that’s 2.5 times more than in Spring 2014 – with the nutrition they need to sustain them over the weekend.
We are beyond excited about the incredible response from the community in joining the fight against child hunger. Churches, businesses, synagogues, nonprofits, and clubs are standing together to say that it is not acceptable for kids in our community to be hungry, and that we’re going to do something about it.
Thank you for your support and partnership in the fight against child hunger!

P.S. Due to how rapidly our network is growing, we have decided to stop writing articles on each partnership, but you can see all of them at www.thesheridanstory.com/wherewework
As we launch into this incredible season of growth, we need your partnership now more than ever. Please consider partnering with The Sheridan Story in the following ways.
As we are growing to reach more kids we need to pack more bags of food! We’ve just opened events for all of the 2014-2015 school year, and there are many opportunities to join! Partner financially with The Sheridan Story – equipping us to get food to the kids in our community who need it. Options for one-time donations and recurring donations (Sustaining Partner) are available. Did you know that The Sheridan Story has to pay for the majority of the food items we put in our bags for the kids? Every item donated is an item we don’t have to buy.
