The Children’s Hunger Project
A team of volunteers and dedicated staff provide food packages to elementary school students on Friday of each week. This kid-friendly food required no refrigeration or cooking. Students who would normally come to school hungry on Monday mornings, instead return well-fed and ready to learn.
50% of Brevard County students are on the free and reduced-price lunch program. Many students who receive breakfast and lunch at school have few food resource at home on the weekends. The Children’s Hunger Project addresses a serious need for the children in our community.
Scrap with a Gift Wrap
At Ellington, protecting the environment is just as important to us as supporting our community. Sometimes you see a company doing a little here or a little there, but we wanted to create something more sustainable. We came up with a way to accomplish both initiatives – Ellington’s “Scrap with a Gift Wrap” program was born!
Here’s how it works… For each system we replace, we recycle every component of the old system being removed. Instead of ending up in a landfill, this “scrap” creates a viable source of income which we use to support worthy causes like The Children’s Hunger Project. A win-win for the environment and the kids!
