school lunch angel donation

Many of our families are struggling with unpaid meal account balances through the entire school year.  A significant part of our Mesa County population are considered the working poor, who miss the coverage provided by free and reduced meal programs, yet still have a need.    Over the last twenty years housing costs have increased 2-3 times within a family’s monthly budget, decreasing the ability to pay other expenses.  The ripple effect is we have an escalating amount of Mesa County families with unpaid meal accounts.  100% of all School Lunch Angel fund donations go directly to the accounts of families with severely high balance unpaid meal accounts.  Click Here to donate to the School Lunch Angel Program

Stuff the Bus

Stuff the Bus has been supporting our students for over 20 years.  Many of our D51 students can't afford to purchase school supplies.  Started by Townsquare Media, Stuff the Bus has partnered with Mesa Mall, D51 Foundation, and D51 Schools to help provide much needed school supplies.  Every summer, the Stuff the Bus makes its appearance in the mall and around town.  People are encouraged to purchase supplies and "stuff" them in the bus.  This is an opportunity to donate directly to pay for school supplies.  The supplies will be purchased and delivered to schools in August.  Thank you for your consideration. Click Here to Donate to Stuff the Bus
