On December 21, just before the Christmas Break, $200 worth of healthy snack items were dropped off at Westbrook Middle School.  These items were used to stock the depleted shelves in preparation for the return of students to school in January.
Food insecurity continues to be one of the greatest challenges in our local community. Too many students arrive at school hungry and not ready to learn. Westbrook Kiwanis Club generously provided healthy snack items for December 2017 and Westbrook-Gorham Rotary stepped up to the challenge to provide for January 2018. We are in the process of challenging another local organization or business to cover February, and hope the trend will continue until the end of this school year. The hope and expectation is that The Locker Project grants and fundraising this year will allow them to add WMS to their list of supported schools in the fall.
