School Supply Update!
FFC is kicking off it’s second year with a bang. Because of you, 165 bookbags were packed and sent to Title 1 schools in Charlotte! Hornet’s Nest Elementary, Oakhurst STEAM Academy, Ranson IB Middle, and West Charlotte High all received school supplies.
Thank you to all of the volunteers and donors who made this happen! Shout out to Mercer, Waddell School, Alpha Theory, Charter, Sardis Presbyterian, Tammy Panovich/Shrimp and Grits, Burn Boot Camp Huntersville, and the countless individuals who hosted school supply drives or donated full backpacks! Special thanks to Providence Day School for allowing the use of their gym for our packing event!
We also packed 30 baskets full of toiletries, cleaning supplies and towels that are being delivered to the families in our program this month!
A New Beginning…
Last weekend FFC trained over 30 volunteers that will serve as Family Liaisons (mentors) for the next nine months. We are excited for the beginning of our second year working with families and appreciate the time and dedication these volunteers show!
There is one last training on October 7. Contact us to sign up today!
Thank you to Sardis Presbyterian for allowing the use of their space for our training sessions!
