360° Painting of Naperville, part of the Kids Lift family of franchise companies, decided to end 2019 on a high note by supporting local children in need. Thanks to Brian and Roxanne Conrad – the owners of the franchise location – 2,000 tasty and healthy snacks were delivered to Indian Prairie School District 204. The snacks were collected largely through donations throughout October and November before being delivered in December.
Previously in August of the same year, 360° Painting and Kids Lift helped organize a backpack drive for the same school district. Pleased with the results of that charitable effort and the way it brought the community together, they started brainstorming about how they could help again. When Indian Prairie School District officials were contacted for ideas, they told Kids Lift that a donation of snacks would be much appreciated.
According to the officials, many students are sent to school with lunches that cannot meet their nutritional needs. An increase in students going to the school nurse due to feelings of nausea and lightheadedness prompted them into action, which resulted in the snack drive.
