Local business 360° Painting of Naperville is stepping up to support education in their local school district with a major donation of 2,000 snacks to the school district. Brian and Roxanne Conrad, owners of 360° Painting of Naperville, wanted to find a way to support students who may not be getting enough food -- or the right food -- at home.

During October and November, Brian and Roxanne collected shelf-stable healthy snacks like goldfish, granola and trail mix to donate to the local Indian Prairie School District. They culminated their efforts by hosting a donation table in front of the Walmart.


Through all their combined efforts, the Conrads were able to donate 2000 snacks to the district, in part thanks to the generosity of their customers, friends, and strangers who reached out to help them during their donation drive.

The idea for the snack drive came about after they reached out to the Indian Prairie School District.

"We let them know we'd like to find a way to help this holiday season," said Roxanne. "The coordinator specifically asked for snacks because they find that kids don't get enough to eat during the day and end up in the nurses' office feeling sick. By donating snacks, we're helping kids stay focused and in class, not in the nurses' office!"

Most often, students in the free and reduced lunch program rely on school for their food. When they don't get enough during the day, their hunger can distract them from class. These snacks will help students focus on their education and stay in class.

Their donation of 2,000 snacks will be distributed to the neediest schools in the district. This is not the first time that 360° Painting has collaborated with Kids-Lift to give back -- in August, they donated backpacks and school supplies to the school district to help kids begin the school year.
