Throughout the holidays, The News-Journal is highlighting the program by publishing the stories of some of its young participants. For more information, visit foodbringshope.org.
My name is Naleah Jensen, and I am in first grade at Longstreet Elementary. For Christmas, it would be great if I could decorate the house with my Grandpa. That would be very special. Art is one of my favorite subjects, so I would enjoy getting a paint board for a gift at Christmas or a Jurassic Park tent would be just fine. Grandma would like a special present too, and I wish I could buy her something.
Science is probably my favorite subject, and I do like animals. It would be neat to be a veterinarian when I grow up.
We have not been able to go on any field trips in KidsZone this year because of COVID, but I made a lot of friends.
The best thing about Food Brings Hope is they give us food so we don't ever go hungry, and they make sure we get food every week!
