Generation Alive is excited to partner with the students and families of St. Aloysius!
We are a Spokane-based organization whose mission is to develop a generation of young leaders, committed to serving others and responding to the needs in their community. Please take a look at our website, www.generationalive.org, to learn more about us.
Statistics show there are approximately 73,000 people suffering from food insecurity in Spokane County. That’s one out of every five people who doesn’t know where his or her next meal will come from. On February 13th we presented to the students of St. Aloysius and encouraged them that they could do something to fight this issue. Our Something to Eat TM program provides students with an excellent opportunity to look outside themselves and help someone in need right here in our own community.
At our presentation we gave your student a donation box. We challenged each student to try and fill the box with as much change as they can over the next four weeks. Even if it seems small, every cent will help feed hungry people. One quarter provides one nutritious meal of dried grains, vitamins and vegetables for a person here in Spokane County. For a little added incentive, we are offering a pizza party, sponsored by Pizza Pipeline, for the class that raises the most money. Our goal this year is to raise enough money to make 10,000 meals. With your support, we are confident we will succeed!
The money raised provides the supplies to pack meals at the Something to Eat food-packing event, which will take place March 21st at St. Aloysius. We look forward to this day and watching all of your students’ hard work come to fruition as all students grades K-8th get to pack the meals. Our hope is students who participate in our programs feel a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction knowing they are working to be leaders in action modeled on Christ.
We are excited about spending time at St. Aloysius, getting to know the students and working together to make our community and our world a better place.
