Land of Promise Donates School Supplies
June 7, 2016
Land of Promise (Nourish the Need Program) in partnership with the Atlanta Community Food Bank (Kids in Need Program) donated 5,276 pounds of school supplies to Fulton County Schools.
Parents who struggle to put food on the table may also be challenged to provide their children with necessary school supplies. The Nourish the Need Program provides weekend food backpacks and the Kids in Need Program provides school supplies. Each program’s vision includes the belief that every child should have the tools necessary to achieve academic success. This collaborative effort focuses on improving students’ lives whose educational accomplishments are threatened by poverty.
