The Mount Auburn family continues our support of students with food anxieties by supplying them with weekend food at both Isom and Northeast Elementaries in Greenwood Schools for the 2022 – 2023 school year. Thanks to the Mount Auburn family for supporting this Benevolent Mission. Thanks to everyone who has been bringing in food items! The donations of food have been AWESOME! Also thanks to all those whom have donated monies to purchase food items. Isom Elementary has 40+ students and Northeast Elementary has 45+ students in their “Nutrition Clubs” who will need food for each weekend this school year. As the schoolyear nears the holidays, the number of students has increased. We are now supplying food to 85+ students per week.
This school year, the Mount Auburn Family has supplied food for 2315 individual bags. This comes out to be 4630 pounds or 2.315 tons of food that has been delivered to the students with food insecurities at both elementaries. WOW!
Also delivered to each school were children sized hats, gloves, & socks collected on the Angel Tree. Adult sized gloves and hats were delivered to KIC-IT, an organization that helps homeless students in Johnson County. This Benevolent Mission was sponsored by the Shalom Women’s Group.
Thanks for all you are doing, as individuals and as Life Groups, for this Mission project. The Counselors & Staff at both schools and Dr. Terry Terhune, Superintendent of Greenwood Schools, are very grateful for ALL we do for their students.
Thanks to Marge Patton, Libby Allen, Paula Anderson, Judy Shockley, John Thompson, Linda Alexa, and Donna & Mark Silvertooth for helping to bag the 180 individual student bags needed for the upcoming two weekends. With all their help, it took only 40 minutes to bag all the food.
