The folks at Norcross Cluster Schools Partnership are nuts.
They want you to participate in their fund raising so they can work harder to supply much needed support for our public schools. The more they raise, the more work they and their volunteers (me) have to do. It can be finding donors for office/school supplies or "beg, borrowing or stealing" books for children to take home and read or supporting other Norcross school projects. These all take time and funding.
I've been on both the packing and the delivering end of NCSP projects. Both are a lot of work, but both mean something to our children. When delivering supplies to a couple of our schools the staff was very appreciative and know how to put the goods to good use. When giving books to 3rd graders to take home, some said this was their first book.
The September 28th Harvest Ball is another example of working hard to create more work for the volunteers (me).
September 28, 2012
Registration will start at 7 p.m.
Followed by Food and Dancing
Northeast Atlanta Hilton
5993 Peachtree Industrial Boulevard
Peachtree Corners, Georgia 30092
Great dance band, good food, convenient location. All the money goes to directly support the Norcross and Peachtree Corners schools.
So help Norcross Cluster Schools Partnership keep the volunteers (me) busy and the support for our schools streaming.
As I said, the folks at Norcross Cluster Schools Partnership are nuts.
