On Monday evening, Mike and Sheila Abusaab donated $1,000 to the organization Food2Kids Big Spring, located at the old Lakeview High School.
The purpose of the program is to provide nutritious meals to children over the weekend because sometimes children are not able to get a nutritious meal until they go back to school on Monday morning. Mike Abusaab stated that he and Sheila had helped to sack meals once before and recognized that there was a need for the program in the community and that he and Sheila wanted to help by donating money. He also went on to say that he hopes other business owners will be inspired to donate to the organization as well.
Karen Carmen, with Food2Kids - Big Spring, stated that the organization was thankful for the donation and support that they have received from the community.
Here JoAnne Forrest, spokesperson for the Food2Kids program, told KBest Media that this program should be important to everyone in Big Spring because "no one can function properly when they're hungry, and with the amount of prosperity in the region there is no excuse for children in our community to go hungry."
If you’d like to contribute money to Food2Kids Big Spring, you can donate money can contact their headquarters at First Methodist Church. You can also donate your time by helping to sack the meals at old Lakeview High School Gym. The organization meets there during the 1st or 3rd week of the month, on Monday and Tuesdays at 5:30 PM.
Last week alone, they were able to sack 600 meals.
