Student L.I.F.E. - School Back Packs

posted Jun 30, 2017, 1:38 PM by Sharon Ames

The L.I.F.E. (Loveland Interfaith Effort) Food Pantry is a faith based organization that provides food, financial assistance and services to residents in need within the Loveland School District. For over six years, the L.I.F.E. Food Pantry has been assisting qualified families of Loveland students by providing personal care bags for the new school year.  These bags have included dental care supplies, socks, underwear, Loveland Spirit wear, books, gift cards  and other personal care items.  We're happy to announce that we will be offering the same service this year along with SCHOOL BACK PACKS filled with grade appropriate school supplies.

The Student L.I.F.E. Shop will be held at the Prince of Peace Church on August 12, 2017.  In addition to personal care items and school supplies, there will be representatives from various schools and community programs.  Each qualifying family will have the opportunity to sign up for these programs.

Remember the beginning of each school year and the excitement of getting new school supplies, perhaps a new outfit and new shoes?  Many of these students don't have opportunities that we had. We are asking that you please consider donating to this wonderful cause which will give each student that positive outlook toward a new school year.

Because of your assistance, we are fortunate to be able to hold events of this kind.  Last year, with the help of the community,  we served over 200 children from 113 families.  Attached is a list of personal care items and school supplies that our Loveland students will need to start off the new school year. We appreciate any donations you can give.  They can be marked Student L.I.F.E. and dropped off in the donation boxes located inside the side door of Prince of Peace Church, Loveland Music Academy (209 W Loveland Ave.) or directly at the pantry when we are open (Mon/Thurs 4-6:30 and Wed/Sat 10 - 12:30).

Donations will be accepted during the month of July.
