Grant Awarded to East Elementary
Posted on 06/01/2020
East elementary staffWe are proud to announce that East Elementary School has received a grant in the amount of $1,500 from the The Hamels Foundation to assist our families with emergency food needs during this unprecedented time. Mr. Freer, East Library Media Specialist, completed and submitted the application to benefit the 20 East families ($75 to each family) who are part of the Food Backpack Program with The Northern Illinois Food Pantry. Thank you to Mr. Freer and The Hamels Foundation! Another huge thank you goes out to the wonderful employees at Walmart Zion who helped Principal Munoz throughout her shopping trip as she picked up food for the 20 families. The employees assisted Principal Munoz throughout the entire shopping trip by helping to push carts, place items in carts, load up her car (and theirs!) with the groceries, and finally by taking time out of their day to drive to East in order to assist with the unloading process.
