Dear Grandma,

Zack and I learned about a girl who was in the foster system named Tiana. Her mom didn't want her.  She's homeless. Fill a Heart 4 Kids delivers food & WeCare Packages to her.  They have over 500 youth in their homeless program who receive their Survival BacPacs™.  


 A lot homeless kids are scared right now.  They need food, critical necessities and activities to help keep them safer and calm through this difficult time. 


For my school service hours I'm raising money for Survival BacPacs.   My goal is to raise $1,000.

I hope you can help us. We would be so grateful for your support. 


Alley and Zach
