Happy Fall, Cherokee County!
We finally have some fall weather, and what better way to enjoy the crisp air than participating in the 6th annual CCEF Golf Classic benefiting the students and staff of the Cherokee County School District on October 14th at BridgeMill Athletic Club. Don't miss the chance to show off your golf game, all for a good cause.
Each summer, supporters of Cherokee County Educational Foundation (CCEF) are encouraged to travel with their CCEF t-shirts and capture photos near and far. They submit their travel pictures to the On the Road with CCEF contest, and the person who travels the greatest distance is awarded a $300 gift card. A drawing is held for an additional $100 gift card from all other entries.
Many kids rely on the meals provided to them by their school to keep them fed. So, what happens when they're out for the summer and are no longer able to obtain food? The answer is disheartening – they often go hungry.
"6 out of 7 hungry kids don't get the summer meals they need." Reports No Kid Hungry.
This is a reality that so many children face, but thanks to the funding of the USDA Seamless Summer Option, less kids are going hungry in the summer months.
The Cherokee County School District Nutrition Department and the Transportation Department joined forces to take an old school bus and turn it into a sign of hope for so many children. This sign of hope came in the form of a new delivery bus.
This café on wheels made a big impact on Cherokee County's community. The only requirements are that the recipients of these summer meals must be 18 years old or younger, and that they eat the meal on-site – no identification required! Kids can eat either in the bus or on the tables and chairs provided that surround the bus.
