Volunteers from the Atkins community organized and delivered meals throughout the summer for the students in the Atkins School District. The district is very grateful for all those involved in making this happen for our students and families.
The summer program provided food for 8 families, which includes more than 20 students K-12. This program was funded by monetary donations received from Entergy, Atkins Masonic Lodge #172 and Shiloh Lodge #333. Food boxes were prepared by volunteers and delivered by members of both lodges.twice a month. The NOW Program, organized by Atkins First FreeWill Baptist Church, assisted in providing snacks for boxes.
