Lifeline is looking for your help

On Saturday May 3rd at Country Grocer off Bowen Road a bottle drive is going to be held. The funds raised with go to the Lifeline program, which is all about health and wellness for kids and young adults.

Lifeline works in cooperation with other organizations to bring a unique service to children and youth. The Lifeline program reaches out students of all backgrounds, including those at risk. Currently we provide drop in programs at Bayview Elemengary and John Barsby Community School as a strategic source of food security, safe and supervised recreation, and more.

Our goal is to continue to expand our programs, working with partners in our community to ensure no student attends school hungry and make sure that every student has access to caring, supportive non-parental adults. It’s a tall order, but we’ve come to know that it’s exactly these types of support systems that make the biggest differences in increasing student achievement, minimizing high-risk decisions, and instilling confidence when making tough choices.

Lifeline also operates a baking program in cooperation with John Barsby Community School to facilitate a snack program for all students, and most recently, we’ve also launched a support-group program to help students overcome issues like low self-esteem, poor stress management skills, and other critical issues.

Fund raisers like this one enable us to continue to do what we do; in fact, it’s been the generous support of people in our community that has helped us to come this far. Please mark Saturday May 3rd on your calendar, and drop by Country Grocer on Bowen Road with your cans and bottles.
