Dear Parents and Families,

Unity East is entering the tenth year of our long-term service project, the Rocket Pack Program, which helps students and families in our school who need food assistance. Every week, teachers at East assemble Rocket Packs to send home food and snacks for students to eat over weekends and long breaks. 

We make every effort to partner with families and share these donations. If your child would benefit from receiving a weekly pack of food, please call the school and ask to speak with Ellen, our school nurse. Participation is strictly confidential and student privacy is a priority.

 This program relies 100% on donations from our community. To continue offering this program, we do ask for your help with food donations. If you are interested in helping support this program, please consider the options below.

Thank you for your generosity in providing for the students of Unity East - it makes a world of difference!

In partnership,

Jim Carver, Principal
