An Administrative Assistant at ERPS, dedicated to seeing that all children are fed, shared a disturbing story. Early one morning, she saw a very young boy rummaging through the garbage looking for something to eat. She did what she could do for him, but isn’t it a shame that our neighbor’s children don’t have enough to eat? They aren’t able to concentrate & learn with hunger gnawing away their attention.
