Thank you!

I wanted to let you know that our fundraiser was a huge success. It was help again this year at the Hoover vs. Spain Park football game.

As you reported, our goals last year was to raise $1,000 per school but instead raised $4,281. This year our goal was to raise $5,000 and we raised $8,419!

Our goal at Hoover Helps is to help meet the basic needs of the children in our community. There are children in Hoover that are considered food insecure. They don’t have proper nutrition, especially on weekends. Backpack feeding programs or similar feeding initiatives are now in place at all Hoover City schools.

There are numerous business and faith based organizations in the community that are sponsoring schools and delivering food each Friday.

This is an issue in every community. I’m encouraging everyone to get involved in helping create or support a program in your area. You can also get involved by donating at hooverhelps.org.
