    Nearly 320,000 children receive free or reduced-fee meals during the school
    year. When school ends, these children and their families will struggle to

    Crisis Care Kits are a cooperative effort between Nazarene Compassionate

    community center with nothing but the clothes on their backs.  Crisis Care Kits
    contain items such as shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, soap, washcloths
    and other hygiene products.  The kits also include a small stuffed animal for
    children. These kits have been sent to places like Belize, Dominican Republic,
    Haiti, Jamaica, Jordon, Louisiana, Philippines, Senegal, Sri Lanka, Zambia
    and many more.
