Atlee Action Packs

Atlee Action Packs

The Atlee Action Packs program began in 2013, with a mission to help prevent weekend hunger and provide nutrition for Hanover County students in need. Atlee Action Packs are bags of food that include 20 child-friendly items that are simple to prepare and eat. Each Atlee Action Pack provides a student with six, non-perishable meals and four snacks on weekends during the school year.

If you would like to donate one or more Atlee Action Packs, simply purchase the 20, non-perishable food items below. Then, follow the packing and delivery instructions indicated. Your generosity is appreciated! DONATIONS ARE BEING COLLECTED BEFORE AND AFTER SERVICES ON 1/27, 2/3, AND 2/10
