Ashworth College Student Services Delivered the (Canned) Goods in Latest Charity Drive

NORCROSS, GA. - In its first community service effort supporting Norcross Cooperative Ministry (NCM) in 2019, the Ashworth College Student Services department held a Canned Goods Challenge. The goal was two-fold: to help restock the NCM food pantry of items depleted during the holidays and earn raffle tickets for a late-January prize drawing.

“After the holiday rush, charities that offer food and other necessities to needy families get pretty empty. We wanted to start the new year with an effort to help fill in that gap as fast as possible,” said Vice President of Student Experience Melissa Maddox. “Our staff is extremely giving, but we offered raffle tickets in exchange for donations to encourage everyone to give a little extra.”

Donations from the Student Services staff racked up enough non-perishables to earn rewards for three winners. Cowanna Davis, Shondra Gilmere, and James Barnes were each given a $10 gift card to Panera Bread.

NCM was founded in 1988 as a non-profit which provides emergency assistance to low income and homeless neighbors in Norcross, Ga., and surrounding Gwinnett County. The charity is based just five miles from Ashworth College headquarters.

Since 2006, Ashworth College has actively participated in numerous community service projects and charity drives. Local and national organizations like American Red Cross Disaster Relief, Angel Tree, Atlanta Community Food Bank, Children’s Miracle Network, Habitat for Humanity, March of Dimes, Mothers Against Drunk Driving, and the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.
