Teacher of the Month Program at Kennesaw Mountain High School ~ June 2021
 

We were proud to sponsor the Teacher of the Month Program, along side of the PTSA, at Kennesaw Mountain High School.

Congratulations to all of these amazing educators!  

I greatly appreciate all of our teachers and staff.  Their responsibilities increased with COVID-19 and they continued to prevail.

2020 Annual Military Toy Drive ~ December

The love shown by our community will get you into the Christmas spirit! I am so very grateful for everyone’s generosity.
With your help and donations, we were able to deliver toys and gift cards to the Georgia National Guard Christmas Assistance Program. πŸŽ…πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸŽ„πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ
It was an amazing team effort and the results will be a blessing to our local military families.
The warehouse photo shows the donations that were provided from all over of the state, from families like yours, from churches, from JROTCs, from local businesses, etc. The toys and gift cards in the wearhouse photo are from a variety of other programs and other toy drives.
This is the 'big' picture folks encompassing kindness, love of our military and the spirit of giving.
Thank you to our returning donors and for our new ones. The Georgia National Guard Christmas Assistance Program collects toys year round. If you would like to make a donation at any time throughout the year, you can contact the National Guard directly or feel free to reach out to me.
