I am so excited to be partnering with Champion for Kids once again! They makes it simple to give kids in your community the resources they need to thrive. Since 2004, Champions for Kids has served more than 5.4 million children across all 50 states through in-store donation campaigns, service projects and community events.
We often take for granted that when our kids come home they always have access to good food. This is not the case for many kids across the US. The Snacks for Students program which is part of SIMPLE Giving, seeks to make it simple for shoppers to purchase and donate items children need. U.S. customers at more than 3,600 participating Walmart stores can purchase snacks and breakfast items for children and place them inside designated donation bins. All donations made in-store will stay in the local community and be distributed through school districts or youth-based organizations.
In addition, Champions for Kids, General Mills, Kellogg’s, Emerald and Kettle Chips will provide 13 awards, totaling $45,000, to school districts and participating youth-based organizations based on the total number of donated items collected in each store.
It was great for me to get my childhood school, Newport Primary, enrolled! This district will always have a special place in my heart! It is where I went to school from k-5th grade and I have so many great memories of this school! There are many kids there that are in need and could use any extra help given to to them, this program will bless them so much and I’m thrilled to be a part of it!
I was able to go to my Walmart and spend 100.00 on snacks for my school! This was so fun, my daughter and I had a blast picking out snacks for the kids!
You can also participate in the Snacks for Students Program! Simply use this store locator to see if your Walmart is participating. Champions for Kids has many different programs throughout the year, so if you miss this one, keep an eye out for future opportunities. Our local Walmart will have bins out throughout the weekend!
I participated in this program on behalf of Champions for Kids and The Motherhood. All opinions are my own.
