Lovepacs was born out of a shared desire to help children in our community. In November 2011, the four founding families were made aware of six kids at Camey Elementary in The Colony who were being sent home from school every Friday with a backpack of food because they were not getting enough to eat on the weekend. After talking to the school counselor, we found out many of these kids were going to be hungry over the Thanksgiving holiday, when they were out of school for a week.
The thought of kids not eating touched the hearts of our families, and we began Lovepacs to try to fill in the gaps for these children over the holidays. Even though our first goal was to pack boxes for those six kids with enough food for the Thanksgiving holiday, we knew (due to demographic information) that the number of at-risk kids was much higher than six. We felt led to invite our local community to help us meet the need and we were able to provide boxes of food for not just those six students, but an additional 40.
Since then, Lovepacs has grown to serve eight North Texas communities, including Frisco. Our mission is not just to feed children in need, but to engage our local community in the process. Through our community, this need is met, with financial donations, cards of encouragement, decorated boxes, food donations, and hands-on box packing.
