Trick or Treat so Kids Can Eat “Because hunger is a really scary thing.” Honor theater arts students from Kaffie Middle School will be collecting nonperishable food at school October 24-31st and in the surrounding neighborhoods on the 31st. Food will be donated to the Corpus Christi Food Bank. According to America’s Second Harvest Network, one in five children face hunger in America. Studies have shown that hunger leaders to physical, cognitive, and behavior problems, some of which are irreversible. Not only are these children at risk for serious health problems, but nutrient deficiencies impair their academic performance. As a result, they do not learn the valuable skills needed to succeed and often succumb to the cycle of poverty. You can make a difference! Please donate to the Kaffie Theater Club’s Trick or Treat so Kids can Eat campaign. New Club!! Be part of the Recycling Club! Do you care about the environment? Saving the planet? Then, this club is for YOU! Join now! Come to room 105 Ms. Santana’s room for more information. Meetings are on Thursdays in room 105 at 4:05 pm.
