Spreading Holiday Cheer to Dubuque Community School District Families
The Holidays are going to be a little brighter for 250 Dubuque Community School families thanks to the Dubuque Hy-Vee stores. Hy-Vee contacted the Foundation for Dubuque Public Schools and asked for help in facilitating the process of donating 250 Thanksgiving food bundles to the DCSD families. The Foundation worked with administration at the Forum to identify the number of food bundles that will be delivered to each school in the district.
On Monday, November 23, FDPS Board Members, School Board Members, and District Employees will be delivering bundles of non-perishable food items to each school in the district. Attached to the bundle will be a voucher that families can take to any Hy-Vee to redeem for the perishable items. Counselors at each school have been working on contacting families about receiving these donations.
FDPS and Hy-Vee are partnering in December to raise funds with donations from customers to supply basic food items to families around the holidays. Look for additional information at the checkouts of your local Hy-Vee store.
