The Mount Vernon community gave in a big way and at a time when our local community needed it the most. From Monday, April 4 through Friday, April 15 the entire Mount Vernon community came together to Share the Well by donating non-perishable food items for those through the Sandy Springs Community Assistance Center.
Traditionally, MVPS like so many companies and organizations, has collected food during the month of November. Yet last year, after spending time with the Community Assistance Center in Sandy Springs, many of our youngest learners discovered the leanest time of year for giving occurs in the spring. Reflecting on this experience as well as the feedback received from Community Assistance Center volunteers, Mount Vernon made the decision to hold this year’s food collection drive in April.
