Lowndes Co Schools Providing Support to Students and Families

Share with friends


“Recognizing many students eat two meals a day at school, Lowndes County Schools partnered with community members to provide food to students and their families during the school closure,” according to Sandra Wilcher, Director of Student Support Services. Redland Baptist, Crossroads Baptist, Abundant Life, Hahira Methodist, Called to Care, Perimeter Road Baptist, New Life Ministries, First Baptist Lake Park and Second Harvest Food Bank have all contributed to this effort.  As of this afternoon, 1,530 meals or food boxes have been distributed in a variety of ways to make sure all areas had access. Some food sites provided lunch bags while others offered food boxes to families. Today, 100 food boxes were delivered to families who were not able to reach a feeding site. Visit our website at: https://one.lowndes.k12.ga.us/ for options available next week with even more partners planning to help!  Wilcher said, “After we found out school was closing, within 24 hours we had the support of community partners willing to step in and help. We have the best community with the biggest hearts.”
