Serving our Kids Foundation (SOK) supports thousands of Clark County students with weekend meals during the school year. Government programs provide free weekday lunches at school, but these students may go hungry on the weekends without the Las Vegas community’s generosity.
Inspired by Tobymac’s song, “Help Is On The Way,” SOS Radio partnered with TobyMac to stock Serving Our Kids Foundation with enough bottled water for the summer!
The DJ’s from SOS Radio collected bottled water, drive thru style, at the SOK warehouse in Henderson on Saturday. TobyMac seeded the effort by donating 2,500 bottles of water to set the momentum! SOS Radio listeners generously followed suit, with over 15,000 bottles of water dropped off in only 3 hours! In addition, Barcode Burgers donated 2,424 bottles of water and challenged other restaurant owners to drive up and serve our at risk kids!
“When the school year wraps up in May, food insecure students have new challenges. We wanted to make sure SOK was stocked with enough water for the summer,” said Scott Herrold, SOS Radio morning show host. “We had lots of listeners drive through with carloads full of water. We also had student volunteers unloading the vehicles & stocking the warehouse all morning with us. They love what SOK does for their friends at school.”
Serving Our Kids Foundation is dedicated to feeding and serving the needs of Clark County students. Approximately 128,000 children in the Clark County School District meet the federal income-eligible definition of food insecure. Government programs simply cannot serve them all. This is where the Serving Our Kids Foundation has stepped in to fill the gap and feed hungry children with after school and weekend meal bags. Donations of food and water are being accepted year round. Details can be found online at www.servingourkids.org.
