ALPHARETTA, Ga. – April was a busy month at New Prospect Elementary School. Students collected non-perishable food items, pet food and clothing to assist the community in North Fulton.
The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) sponsored Operation Helping Hands in April, which involved activities that benefitted several local charities. Their goal was to invite students to help others in the community through a fun-filled outreach program.
Students participated in Fight Hunger Day by collecting non-perishable food items such as peanut butter, jelly, canned fruit, cereals and oatmeal. All items were donated to the North Fulton Community Charities food bank.
Be Kind to Animals Day was a big hit. Students donned their favorite animal print clothing and brought in old towels and blankets, animal toys, bones and animal food. All items were donated to Perfect Pets Rescue and the Humane Society.
FUNderwear and Socks Day encouraged students to wear crazy or mismatched socks while collecting new pairs of socks and underwear for foster children. All items were donated to Foster Care Support Foundation.
