The Mount Vernon community demonstrated an outpouring of generosity during the month of November. Through the Share the Well Canned Food Drive benefitting the Sandy Springs Community Assistance Center, students, parents and faculty donated 3,169 items this year. This amount toppled the total for 2012 which was 1,722. Way to go Mount Vernon!
