As you may know, we have a number of families in need of food assistance in our community. Hayhurst has teamed up with Odyssey, Ainsworth and new for this year Robert Gray to provide food bags on a regular basis to the families in our school. The program is funded through Blessings in a Backpack, the PTA’s/PTO’s of all 4 schools and support from Vermont Hills Church.
In a normal year we put together 1 bags each week for families. Currently, due to the pandemic and with limited access to school buildings, we are doing 2 bags every other week to help support in our community.
