Show Me Your Hands Making Donations

Show Me Your Hands, Inc. recently made a donation to the Warren County R-III School District to go towards the "No Child Will Stand in Line of Embarrassment" fund.


Why is SMYH Helping the Warren County R-III School District through the Lunch Program? In their own words:


"A few of the Show Me Your Hands, Inc. volunteers grew up in the Warren County R-III School District.  We know full well about students whose family were struggling to pay bills and did not qualify for the government’s free or reduced lunch program. Some of us have experienced a few days of standing in the lunch line, embarrassed, as our parents were behind on paying our lunch bill and we had no money in our personal lunch account.  Thank God we were given a sandwich to eat but we felt so different than others. With this being said...


"Some of us would hide in the restroom and eat nothing that day so we would not be noticed.  SMYH feels the need to help ease the stress for children facing these same challenges. We have set up with the Warrenton School District: SMYH “No Child Will Stand in the Lunch Line of Embarrassment” Program.  SMYH has arranged with the school district to pay for these student's lunches so the child will not stand in the line of discomfort. The child will be given the same lunch as everyone else. When the parents are able to pay up their child's overdue lunch account, those funds will be put into the Warren County R-III  School District. SMYH “No Child Will Stand in the Lunch Line of Embarrassment” fund to help other children and parents, just like themselves, to make sure no child will ever be forced to stand in line embarrassed or go without eating by hiding in a restroom.


We are Show Me Your Hands Foundation - based on the belief that our neighbors’ needs are of the utmost importance. Our entire team is committed to meeting these needs.


Thank you for your Support.
