September 26th Program

You are invited to our Women4given Program
September 26th 6:30pm
Whiteside Middle School Library
111 Warrior Way, Belleville, IL  (doors open at 6pm)

21% of the children in our state live below the poverty level, and 1 in 5 children in the metro-east don’t know where they’ll get their next meal.  These heartbreaking statistics are everyday reality for children in our community.  Join us as we learn more about this topic and set a plan in motion to help our children.

Our panelists include:

  • Michelle Burton, 5th Grade Teacher, Whiteside School
  • Jean Hasenstab, Social Worker, Whiteside School
  • Mark Peters, Director of Community Health, St. Clair County Health Department
  • Tiana Shear, Child Welfare Specialist, Lutheran Child and Family Services

Women4given has adopted Whiteside school children for the 2017-18 school year. Over 60% of children attending Whiteside school qualify for free or reduced lunches. Not only do the children need lunches, they need food when they get home. Please consider bringing food items to our Sept. program such as: (microwavable) mac & cheese, individual serve fruit cups, peanut butter and cracker packages, soup, canned spaghetti or ravioli.  Thank you in advance!
