FOOD DRIVE

“Thanks for Giving”

November 6-14, 2017

Nickajack will be collecting food items for The Center for Family Resources, which provides over 1,500 Thanksgiving baskets to Cobb families each year.  Thanksgiving week can be even more financially stressful when students are home from school for more than just the holiday meal.  Through participation in the annual Thanks for Giving food drive, our generous community captures the true spirit of Thanksgiving.  With harvesting hands and a helping heart, please consider donating one of the following items to our food drive:

  • Canned Gravy
  • Canned Cranberry Sauce
  • Canned Potatoes
  • Canned Green/Yellow Vegetables
  • Canned Pumpkin Pie Mix
  • Canned Milk
  • Canned Meat, Tuna, or Ham
  • Canned Fruit
  • Canned Soup

Beginning November 6th, please send any food items that you would like to donate to school with your child.  There will be collection barrels located outside the main office.  Thank you for your generosity!  If you have any questions, please contact Nicole Weber at 678-842-5814, ext. 230.

Parents,

Back the Jack is the Nickajack Elementary Foundation’s annual fundraising campaign. The campaign has started and ends September 15th. The foundation will raise money to supplement educational expenses for Nickajack’s students.

The donations to the Nickajack Elementary School Foundation help put technology into the hands of our students with classroom enrichments such as iPads, sound boxes, rocket launchers, and computer programming equipment, so students will have all the resources they need to get prepared academically. It’s time to “Back the Jack” with your donations!

Thank you!!
