Weekend Power Pack Program

The Moniteau School District Weekend Power Pack Program provides a supply of food for children over the weekend or school holiday. Many students receive breakfast and lunch at school but may have limited food at home over the weekends. The Weekend Power Pack was developed to help ensure that those students have nutritious, nonperishable, easy to prepare foods available. Each student receives a bag with two breakfast items, four entree items, two fruits, two juices, and two snacks.

Each week the Weekend Power Pack provides students at the Dassa McKinney Elementary School with food to help them return to school on Mondays ready to participate and learn. The entire Weekend Power Pack Program is completely funded through generous donations.

We are hoping that our community, organizations, churches, and businesses will find our program worthy of support so we can continue to provide the Weekend Power Pack to the students of the Moniteau School District. Food donations can be dropped off at the Dassa McKinney Elementary School. Monetary donations can be sent to:

Dassa McKinney Elementary School
Weekend Power Pack Program
391 Hooker Road
West Sunbury, PA 16061

With your help we can continue to provide food to children in need. 100% of your donation goes towards the food distributed through the Weekend Power Pack.
