Immediate Need: Food Bags

The Worcester Program conducts street outreach on a weekly basis. The main supply that we carry around with us is food bags. We are running low on these.

Host a Food Bag Drive!

You can host a food bag drive for StandUp For Kids - Worcester.

Here are the items in our food bags:
  • Juice Box/Water
  • Candy Bar
  • Pudding/Fruit Cup (pop top)
  • Cup of ravioli, spaghetti, etc. (pop top); or Bumblebee Chicken or Tuna Salad with Crackers
  • Granola Bar
  • Napkin and plastic ware
Plus, one of our volunteers would be more than happy to come and talk about StandUp For Kids during your food drive.

Contact us at for more information.

The 2009 Outreach Stats

We've totaled up our outreach numbers from 2009 and wanted to share them with all our wonderful supporters.

We outreached to over 290 kids, provided 132 meals, assisted with two ID/Birth Certificate requests, and sent one kid home by request.

All this was done by a program made up of only 18 volunteers.

Imagine how much we can do if we double the number of volunteers we have today.

Contact us at if you are interested in helping our program.
