Chattahoochee Tech Volunteers for Hungry Children

CHAT TECHJASPER0188

(Jasper, Ga. – July 14, 2014)Chattahoochee Technical College students, faculty and staff will have the opportunity to pack 300 lunches for toddlers to teens living in Pickens County on Monday, July 21 from noon to 1 p.m. The lunches will then be delivered to different locations throughout Pickens County as a part of Service Learning Committee project with MUST Ministries Summer Lunch program.

For 19 years the local non-profit organization has been collecting and distributing lunches to thousands of children who normally eat free and reduced cost lunches at school. During the 10 weeks of summer break they are left with little or no food, as most are children of minimum wage workers who must leave their children in the care of a neighbor or older child.

In addition to packing lunches between noon and 1 p.m. Monday, Chattahoochee Technical College students, faculty and staff are being asked to donate individually packed snacks, juice drinks and books for anyone from toddlers to teenagers in the red barrel at the Appalachian Campus Student Center.
