Demonstrating their commitment to giving to others, Primrose School of Ahwatukee recently helped feed hungry families throughout the Phoenix area. The preschoolers donated more than 59,544 food items to St. Vincent de Paul last month.

The Primrose Schools across the Valley partnered with 102.5 KNIX Country in its Million Can Crusade. On Nov. 20, St. Vincent de Paul and Ben, Matt, and Caroline from 102.5 KNIX Country visited the Primrose School of Ahwatukee.

The donation of more than 106,000 food items from the Primrose Schools in the Phoenix metro area comes when American families find themselves in critical need as men, women and children face hunger.

According to Feeding America, a total of 49 million Americans struggle with hunger, including 16 million children.

Giving back to the community was a major focus of the annual food drive, as well as a key component of the Primrose Schools Balanced Learning system, which blends teacher-directed and child-initiated activities with special emphasis on character development.

The Caring and Giving program is a nationwide initiative, with participation from more than 270 Primrose Schools across the country and helps students understand the value of generosity and creates a hands-on approach to math, nutrition and planning skills.
