Free Food Resource for Summer Months - Army of Angels 5/19/2020

As we prepare to transition our students into the summer months, many of our Wekiva families will continue to be struggling with the financial and emotional impact of COVID-19.

Throughout their crisis response efforts to COVID-19, Army of Angels was able to provide over 61,000 meals and 1,000 boxes to families in need which are delivered to families doorsteps by volunteers. This nonprofit organization was created by two Winter Park HS teachers to serve their community, but this quickly spread to supporting all of OCPS during the pandemic.

Many of our Wekiva Staff stepped up to volunteer throughout the last two months to make deliveries to our side of town and to make sure our students’ families had their basic needs met. Our strong volunteer base combined with the large number of requests submitted by families in the Apopka/Wekiva Area led to Army of Angels creating a separate branch that will continue moving forward, even though the crisis response has officially ended. This will be especially important when school is out for the summer!

If you have a student you feel would benefit from receiving a box of groceries from Army of Angels, please utilize the following link:

If you would like to volunteer or learn more, please refer to the additional links below. All deliveries to the Wekiva area will be occurring on Saturdays from May 23 to July 25.
