LRSD & Mosaic Church Collecting Food Items for Families Furloughed During Gov. Shutdown


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – As families of federal workers get back on their feet and other families struggle to put food on the table, the Little Rock School District and a church are stepping up to the plate. 

LRSD is asking for non-perishable food items to fill Superintendent Mike Poore’s office–if it’s successful–the superintendent will go up to the admin office roof all say on February 12. 

Food items will be donated to the Mosaic Church in Little Rock, which will help families put food on the table. 

“People have that feeling of giving — that’s there but then in January and February it kind of turns inward a little bit maybe because we’re paying our own bills and we don’t have as much promotion,” says Mike Poore.

LRSD is also asking for a $1 donation to support Bright Futures, a group that works to create a better learning environment for students. 

Poore says people can drop off fresh meat and Hygiene items. 

You can drop off donations now at district headquarters on West Markham.
