About 1,800 students make up the current RJR student-body. Approximately 50% of them qualify for a free or reduced price lunch. That represents about 900 Reynolds students! Sadly that means that some students show up not having had anything to eat since they left school the day before. To combat this, a group of parent volunteers has teamed up with the Second Harvest Food Bank and Centenary United Methodist Church to engage RJR students, clubs, staff and families in supporting the Demon Pantry (pictured above). This pantry has food for such students. It also has toiletries for needy students.
Eligible students can go to the Guidance Department and complete a short form to enroll and start receiving food and toiletries weekly....and if needed: can be immediately given something to eat.
This pantry exists ONLY because of donations! Please consider giving to this VERY worth cause. Also, please know that a $100 donation will sponsor one of the 900 RJR students for a semester! If you would like to make a secure tax deductible donation via your credit card: click onto the following link:
