Kids Against Hunger Fremont www.kahfremont.org has partnered with Step30.org to collect gently used shoes for the children of Kenya. 95% of children who live by the border of Kenya do not own shoes and their bare feet are infected by fleas and parasites. Our goal is to collectively send a container of 30,000 pairs of shoes to Kenya in the winter of 2019. The shipping container will then be used to build classrooms for the children. Please drop off shoes in the boxes/bins that are marked Kids Against Hunger Shoes for Life located at the School Office or inside one of your classrooms. There are also shoe donation bins in both locker rooms. Our next MSJ Kids Against Hunger Club meeting is next Tuesday, 11/12 during lunch in Room B3. We will be discussing the December event to pack over 15,000 meals for the needy and how you could earn service hours. Please join us to see how we can be part of the change agent to help end hunger.

 

 Juniors Arul Verma and Aarush Agrawal are conducting a School Supplies Drive to help developing African schools. Throughout this effort, they will be collecting school supplies and donating them to schools in Africa through DevelopAfrica, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting African children in their education. 

We all have school supplies from previous years just lie around and clutter houses. To put these excess school supplies to good use, please donate them to those who need them. There will be flyers and boxes around campus, one in Mr. Melcic's room C9, one in Mr. Remmers's room B16, one in the BTQ, and one in the office. If you have any supplies that you would like to donate, please put them in one of these boxes. Flyers will contain possible materials that can be donated. 

Whatever school supplies that are donated can have a big impact on African children pursing education, so please take the time to search around your house to find any supplies to donate. 

Audition for the Fremont’s Got Talent Showcase held by the Fremont Youth Advisory Commission! The event is on December 6 from 6-9:00 PM at the Fremont Teen Center and auditions are November 18 -19. Sign up to audition at:
