Snack Drive

North Point Community Church high schoolers Eric Gardolinski (left) and Chase Ruelle (right) are some of the many students who helped bring in more than 4,000 snacks. 

North Point Community Church is collecting snacks for underserved elementary school students of Fulton County Schools.

Healthy, individually wrapped snacks can be donated from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day Feb. 7 to 10 in collection bins located outside the church at 4350 North Point Parkway in Alpharetta. NPCC will then work with local schools to distribute the snacks to students who need them most.

Having a midday snack can help students focus and stay on track, but some students don’t have snacks to bring from home. Amy Ostrander, who leads the church's UpStreet elementary school and Waumba Land preschool ministries, is a former teacher who says she knows how important snack time is for students. 

“We hope the public will join us in this great opportunity to give, serve, and love our community by helping local teachers provide snacks for students in need,” Ostrander said. 

Getting a jump on the snack drive, NPCC’s InsideOut high school students have already donated more than 4,124 snacks for local schools.
