Adopt a School 
 
In our hopes to impact our community, we have formed a partnership with some of our local schools. We strive to the school in several different ways.
 
Food Pantry: Many students who attend the NGA do not have a stable food supply.  We stock a food pantry at the school so the counselors/teachers/staff can give out food as they see the need for it.  
School Supply Drive: At the beginning of the school year, we also have a school supply drive to ensure students have all the supplies they need to succeed. 
Night of Wonder: Every Christmas, we sponsor needy students and families and provide them with the makings of a Christmas dinner.  In addition to food, we also provide Christmas gifts for the students.  We love that we get the opportunity to tell these families about the real meaning of Christmas and also tangibly meet their needs.  
Teacher Appreciation: We don’t want our service to stop with the students.  We also strive to serve the teachers by providing them with breakfast/lunch/snacks throughout the year. 
 
If you would like to donate supplies or be involved in this ministry, please contact Allison Dayton, DCE
