Lotus Light donate food and household necessities to support Inner City School Students
On October 6, 2020, Lotus Light donated a batch of food and household necessities to Britannia Elementary School emergency food pantry program for registered low income families. According to program coordinator Stephanie Digiacomo, more than 40% of the students attending Britannia Elementary are from families below the poverty line. Many students are from low-income or single-parent families, and due to the pandemics, many families lost their employment income. The families don’t have much money left after paying rent, utilities and other daily expenses. Some families could not even afford three meals a day for their children. They need assistance for food and household supplies from the food bank and the school all year long.
In view of this, Lotus Light specially allocated some charity fund to purchase daily necessities and nutritious food to support the school program on a regular basis. The donation received a warm response from the school. Stephanie Digiacomo said happily: The household necessities and food donated by Lotus Light are very timely and applicable. Our family program just got some pasta from the food bank, but the families could not cook them because of lack of sauce. Lotus Light just donated several cases of pasta sauce to us just the right time. And our program seldom get donation for common household necessities items. The liquid detergent donated by Lotus is very popular among students’ parents. We got dozens of boxes of canned food, breakfast cereals too. Thank you so much.
