Frequently Asked Questions:
What is in the weekend bag?
The contents of the weekend bags are driven by the need to balance nutrition and available resources, as well as the importance to remember that a small child is going to be bringing this bag home with them so we need to keep it manageble.
Can I donate food items?
While we don’t directly collect food items, our partners do. Please contact us and we will gladly put you in touch with the right group for whatever you have to offer.
How else can I help SHUPPrinceton?
Easy, spread the word. The more people in our community who know about SHUPPrinceton and the work we do, the more kids we can help. And of course, please donate and/or volunteer.
