Each year Junior Auxiliary of Tipton County provides supplemental food to local school students through the Snack Packs Program. These children have been identified by their schools as economically disadvantaged and may need food assistance.
Each week we provide 3-4 snack items, including a protein item, and drinks to each of the students on our service list. The project would not be possible without the support of our community. At this time we serve approximately 120 students each week, with the hopes of expanding to other Tipton County Schools.
If you would like to help with the Snack Packs Program we have multiple ways to help. Please contact our Snack Packs chair, Chelsea Diotte at JATCChildWelfare@gmail.com or 901-896-4544 to discuss how you wish to participate.
