The Kare Kits Story

My name is Kylee McCumber. I am fourteen years old and an eighth 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 over 300 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!!


We accept monetary donations made payable to Kylee's Kare Kits for Kidz, food donations and are always looking for people to donate their time whether it be to help us pack the kare kits, shop for the food, deliver it to the schools on Fridays or help us solicit interest in the program.
