The Loveland Initiative mission is to provide educational support and assistance to under-served children and their families. As we move into the 2014-2015 school year, we are preparing for our Cool School Tutoring Program. It is an after school tutoring program which meets twice a week throughout the school year, on Tuesday’s and Thursdays. It helps students with organization, studying for tests, homework.. But, it does more than that. It provides attention to those students who need that extra caring and supportive touch.
With the help of the Loveland Community, we will provide brown-bag lunches for 15-20 students that do not have nutritious food (or any food) available to them at home during the fall and winter months when government food stamps are depleted. The program relies on individuals, businesses; and organizations to prepare 20 brown-bag lunches on the days listed above. The number of lunches required varies slightly according to the enrollment. This is a great way for individuals and others, to group with each other and share making the lunches on a rotational basis.
Each bag lunch can contain a combination of any of the following items:
- Fresh fruit
- Individual fruit cup or applesauce
- Individually wrapped crackers
- 100% fruit snacks
- Juice box or bottled water
- Individually wrapped Pretzels...etc...
- (No Peanut Butter Products Please)
The Cool School Tutoring Program is begins on Tuesday September 9.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!!
