The South Atlanta School of Computer Animation and Design along with Career Technology Instruction (CTI) Coordinator, Phyllis Hayden-Johnson under the direction of Principal Jarod Scott, has organized a can, toy, and clothing drive in conjunction with Hosea Feed the Hungry and Homeless (HFTH). Since its founding in 1971 by the late civil rights icon, Hosea Williams, the organization has helped thousands of Atlantans by feeding and clothing the hungry, along with victims of Hurricane Katrina, through their Food Bank, Homeless Prevention activities, and programs for at-risk youth, and more.
We believe that every child deserves adequate food, clothing, and shelter and that there must be someone there to help them in their efforts to sustain self-reliance. As individuals who want to cause positive change in the world, our goal is to encourage others and make a contribution that will make a difference. Therefore, South Atlanta’s CTI students began collecting goods on December 3, 2012. The Collection ran through December 14, 2012 during which time we collected over 650 can goods, a box of toys, several suits, shoes, purses, coats, slacks, and jeans. On Dec. 17, the students collected, sorted, counted, boxed and will deliver the goods to the Hosea Feed the Hungry and Homeless facility on Tuesday, Dec. 18, 2012.
Our students are “Proudly leading the way by being the next generation in Human Services.” South Atlanta CAD students are truly “Leaders United.”
