About Adopt a Child 2023-2024

26% of Citrus County's children live in poverty, with 71% of area children participating in the school's free and reduced lunch program.

We believe no child should spend the weekend wondering where their next meal will come from.

When surveyed, "Why is Blessings important to you?" children responded, "because it helps us survive" and "if I didn't have it, I would not have food."

Did you know that hungry children have lower math scores?

They are also more likely to repeat a grade, come to school late, or miss it entirely due to illness. 

A donation of $200 will provide weekend meals to a child for the entire school year.
