Facebook is full of the smiling, young faces of our neighborhood kids and teens. It’s Back To School time in Atlanta!
Our neighborhood schools are partnering with Purpose Built Schools Atlanta this year to pursue greater achievement and community among students and local families. We are excited to support them as they work to strengthen our local public schools.
We also want to help students be prepared for class, and this year, we offered backpacks filled with school supplies for sale at rock bottom prices at the Carver Neighborhood Market. We are grateful to All Souls Fellowship and North Avenue Presbyterian Church for providing these Back To School supplies. Students have loved them and are ready to go back to class!
Parents, too, have shared their gratitude for the opportunity to purchase their children's school supplies. "There are a lot of giveaway programs," one neighborhood mom shared, "but there aren't any close by. I am able to walk to the store and let my kids pick out what they want!" She was thrilled for the chance to do so, and we are grateful for the opportunity to support her and her kids this school year!
