Dear Parents and Families,

Unity East is entering into the seventh year of our service project, the Rocket Pack Program. This program supplies children with food and snacks to eat over weekends and long breaks. Teachers assemble these Rocket Packs to send home with children every Friday and before extended breaks.

To continue offering this program, we do ask for your help with food donations. There are several options if you wish to support our effort: 

  1. Sending in a pre-assembled pack that contains 8 foods from the list below (2 from each category, please):





Peanut butter

Canned vegetables

Canned fruits

Graham Crackers

Beans and franks

Fruit cups

Granola bars

Canned pasta




Dried fruits

Breakfast bars

Tuna, chicken, or salmon packets/cans


Easy Mac

Trail mix packs

  1. Sending in any of the items listed above. Teachers will then assemble a pack from our supply of donated food.

  2. Purchasing a grocery store gift card for $10-15. These are used by teachers to buy supplies for the program.

Our goal is to provide students with a Rocket Pack every week for the rest of the school year. For this to become a reality, we rely on a steady stream of donations.

We make every effort to partner with families and share these donations. If your child would benefit from receiving a weekly pack of food, please call the school and ask to speak with Ellen, our school nurse. Participation is strictly confidential and student privacy is a priority.

Thank you for your generosity in providing for the students of Unity East - it makes a world of difference!

In partnership,

Jim Carver, Principal
Unity East Elementary
