Yesterday, students from Ridgeland and Lafayette High Schools helped to unload and organize the 3rd truckload of goods that Remedium Life Science has donated to needy families in Northwest Georgia.

Ridgeland and Lafayette High Schools along with Three Circles Foundation spent the day organizing Remedium Life Science’s $100,000 durable good donation for NW Georgia families in need. The Chattooga County Chamber of Commerce and Helping Hands End Hunger were also involved.

This truckload will be expanded to reach even more families in the Northwest Georgia area. Families and students from the surrounding counties will be invited to “shop” the donations based off the following schedule:

 April 7, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.: City Park Elementary students (Dalton City Schools), Cherokee Ridge Elementary, Rossville Elementary and Gilbert Elementary students who are served through Helping Hands will be able to “shop like it’s Christmas.” School staff, counselors, social workers, and community organizations serving families and children in Northwest Georgia also have been invited to select items for programming to distribute to their students and families in need.

April 8, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.: School groups, foster parents and other regional community groups serving residents in need, including the Boy’s and Girl’s Club, will select goods for programming and distribution to their organizations/families.

April 9, 9-11:00 a.m.: Remaining items will be distributed to families in need throughout the Northwest Georgia community
