The Mansfield School District’s ALE Class is seeking to sponsor a Pack Shack party event. The organization supplies all the dry goods for volunteers to come together to “pack” and make meals, which all stay within our area. -Read more about the Pack Shack.

Alternative Learning Experience classroom facilitator Talana Nelson said “We will be making enough meals to service 1250 families. Each meal bag has eight servings. The bags will then be given out to local churches, daycare, the Mansfield School District and to any other non- profit in need.”

The funds needed to sponsor the Pack Shack event is $2,750. Nelson said she had received a mini grant from BC/BS for $1000.00 but would still need an additional $1,750. “I am asking for help from anyone, any organization or church that may wish to contribute,” stated Nelson. She’s also open to further ideas on grants to help achieve this mission to serve hungry families in our area.

The Pack Shack brings all the supplies and they create a party atmosphere while packing the meals. “I am looking at having the party in April or May on the weekend,” she added. “With 40 people helping to pack the meals it shouldn’t take more than 1.5 hours to complete the party.”

If you would like to assist these students and Nelson, you can contact the school and leave a message for her.
