Tornado Buddy Bag Program
The Mount Carmel Area School District continues to spearhead a fundraising campaign in an attempt to help fund the “Tornado Buddy Bag” program for the 2017-2018 school year. The program sends home bags of food, every weekend, to needy students and families. Students qualify for free lunch and breakfast during school days, but often don’t have any or enough food for weekends. Your generosity allows those students to have enough to eat throughout the weekend and be more prepared to be good learners every day of the week. Find out more information and how you can help MCA students succeed.
