My name is Kylee McCumber. I am twelve years
old and a seventh grader at Sky View Middle
School in Leominster, MA. In September of
2012, at the age of ten, I started Kylee's Kare Kits for Kidz, Inc to help children who
did not have enough food at home on the
weekends. I had noticed that there were many
children eating breakfast at my school each
day and asked my grandmother why this was.
We spoke with my school principal and began
to research ways that we could help these
children. We currently provide food every
weekend for children in the Leominster
public school system. Each Friday the
children receive a kare kit that includes
cereal, juice, fruit cups, applesauce,
pudding, macaroni & cheese, Chicken noodle
soup, Chef Boyardee or Spaghettio products,
granola bars, fruit snacks, peanut butter
crackers.... The contents of the kare kits
vary week to week depending upon what we can
purchase on sale or what may have been
donated that week. My original goal was to
be able to provide food for 10 children each
week. With the support of family, friends
and our community we are now providing food
to 204 children on a weekly basis. This has
been such a heart warming experience for me.
Thank you to everyone who has helped me to
help these children!!
