Eaton Academy Students Fill NFCC Empty Pantry Can you help too?
On Friday, February 24, students from Eaton Academy will deliver food and pantry items to the North Fulton Community Center.
Using the Academy’s character education program, BEST, the students created the idea to raise materials for the Center in an attempt to restock their pantries which empty every month. These ten students organized the project, created flyers for advertising within the school, and collected and sorted food and pantry items.
North Fulton Community Charities (NFCC) is a non-profit human service agency dedicated to preventing homelessness of individuals residing north of the Chattahoochee River in Fulton County (Alpharetta, Johns Creek, Milton, Mountain Park and Roswell). NFCC assists families with basic needs such as food, rent and utilities, and clothing during short term emergencies. The organization helps the less fortunate people of North Fulton County and last year assisted more than 5000 families with food and financial assistance. In 2011 alone, they distributed food over 20,500 times, provided clothing vouchers to 2,000 families, and gave $1.2 million dollars to our clients in need of financial assistance.
The Eaton Academy students’ initiative to help others in their county is an inspiring example of community awareness and compassion. Together they have collected a substantial number of items and are addressing a problem that only requires us to reach out.
