Pantry Packs
Pantry Packs

Chair:

Pantry Packs began when an educator at Evergreen Middle School in Redmond found that children were arriving to school hungry after weekends and holidays. The goal of this non-profit is keeping hungry kids fed. There are kids in our own community without enough food at home to keep their tummies full over the weekend. Pantry Packs provides a rolling backpack program. Every Friday, packs are filled with kid friendly food for the weekend. Kids (identified by school counselors) are able to take the packs home on Fridays, fill their cupboards, and return the packs on Monday to be re-filled for the next week.

Reflections Art Program
Reflections Art Program

Chair:

REFLECTIONS is a National PTA and Washington State PTA cultural arts competition for students in preschool through grade 12.

Each year the Reflections Program challenges students to create art that “reflects” a central theme. Reach out with any questions to reflections@agbellptsa.org
