Food Drive for Storm Victims Is Class of 2011 Project

Northeast Alabama Community College has opened its heart to tornado victims with a recent food drive to provide non-perishable food items for those in need as a result of the destruction and devastation from the April 27 storms.

Members of the 2011 Associate Degree Graduating class last Friday and the Adult Education Graduates last Saturday donated non-perishable food items to be distributed to storm victims. Family, friends, NACC faculty and staff, and other guests attending the graduations also brought donations.

NACC will transport the donated food items from the Northeast Alabama Agri-Business Center in Rainsville to supply distribution centers operated by the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Department and the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department to help the people of DeKalb and Jackson counties.

Pictured below are NACC Presidential Hosts Caleb Wigley, Charlie Morris, and Kyle Wright, getting ready to transport the food items. “Our community comes together--we all come together--we have each other’s backs,” said Wigley. “Everything is put aside in this time of need to help each other.” Morris added, “I feel like the community has done a lot for me and I like giving back.” Wright agreed, “I feel really good knowing that we are helping people.”
