We are focused on helping create weekend backpack feeding programs at the remaining elementary schools.  If you or your organization would like to get involved, contact Greg Bishop at  Hoover Helps will schedule meetings, share success stories and help get the program started.

Volunteer opportunities are available at our partner organizations

“As Hoover is typically considered to be amongst the more affluent communities in Alabama, it is very easy for individuals in need—especially children in need—to be overlooked. Low poverty rates can be very misleading for population-dense areas like Hoover, which has roughly as many individuals living in poverty as all of Greene County, AL—even though Green County’s poverty rate is ten times that of Hoover.”

“In school year 2014-2015, there were more than 3,000 children in the Hoover City School System relying on free/reduced rate meals during the school week, but who did not have access to those meals over weekends and holidays.”
