Finally Posted October 21, 2010 Share Posted October 21, 2010 As we all know there are many many under-priviledged kids out there who need help getting school supplies so that maybe they can have a brighter future. One of the ways the Falcons help these kids is by raising money for a charity that makes sure they get school supplies and this is happening over a good chunk of Georgia.Read some of this:“I want you to know you do make such a diff erencein our students’ lives. They don’t have toworry if they don’t have a pencil and paper asyou have provided that for them (among otherthings).”Jan WatkinsEducator from Lilburn Elementary,Gwinnett County“Thank you for donating the travel packs, books,school supplies, prize box, and other items forthe classroom. I really appreciate all the greatfree stuff .”GuillermoStudent“Thank you for the opportunity you gave me toshop for my students. The items I brought backreally brightened their day. It is so nice of youto remember us each year! Your thoughtfulnessmeans so much to us.”Robert JacksonEducator from Harriet Tubman Elementary“Thank you for the paper, pencils, stapler, scissors,notebook, Kleenex, holepuncher, folders andmost of all socks. I’ll take good care of thembecause they are useful.”LarryStudent“Thank you for the school supplies. They reallyhelped us come to school prepared. Thank youbecause you helped my writing improve withthe pencils and paper.”DezmondStudent“Each semester we receive less and less for ourclassrooms due to budget constraints. Ms. JudyStamps has been instrumental in enablingteachers to fi ll in the gaps. It is businesses likeyours that make a diff erence for my studentsbecause without your supplies, they have verylittle.”Dr. Janeth OsmanEducator, DeKalb International SchoolYou know how this happens? The Atlanta Community Food Bank has a Kids in Need program. These are some of the recent testimonials to that program.They do so much more too.
