Fall Fundraising for the Food Shelf

Snail Lake Kindergarten Center is hosting a fall fundraising drive to benefit Ralph Reeder Food Shelf from November 28 to December 7. Ralph Reeder Food Shelf provides supplemental food assistance to members of our community in an effort to make our neighborhoods and schools healthier and more stable. Snail Lake has set a fundraising goal of $750. As an incentive, Principal Lang has committed to purchasing an additional copy of two of our students’ favorite books for our Snail Lake library when we meet our goal! The selected books are: The Pigeon will Ride the Roller Coaster by Mo Willems and Creepy Crayon by Aaron Reynolds (which is the sequel to Creepy Carrots). These additional copies will allow more students to have access to checking out these favorite books from the library! To make a donation to the food shelf, scan the QR code or visit this website:
