Members of Roswell High School's Varsity football team helped assemble HomeAid CareKits for North Fulton Community Charities.  

HomeAid Atlanta and its volunteers, with support from Chathambilt Homes and Northpoint Mortgage, assembled and donated 500 HomeAid CareKits. CareKits contain hygiene and emergency needs items like toothbrushes, toothpaste, tissues, face masks, snacks and more.

Volunteers from the Roswell High School Varsity Football Team and Fellowship of Christian Athletes spent the morning assembling the 500 CareKits. The CareKits were donated to North Fulton Community Charities, whose mission is to build self-sufficiency and prevent homelessness and hunger by providing emergency assistance and enrichment programs.
