Southmountain Estates Children are “Giving Back”

Posted by: swright 1 week, 3 days ago

A group of 12 NYPUM students on Saturday, September 30th participated in a service project with Grace Church in Marion, North Carolina.  Southmountain joined 150 other volunteers at Pleasant Gardens Elementary School and packed 106,000 meals (that's correct ~ 106,000 meals were prepared) for Servants with a Heart, an organization committed to serving underprivileged communities overseas. We joined their incredibly efficient assembly line process and measured out ingredients, weighed, sealed and boxed fortified rice meals to ship to Nicaragua. Our kids served with joy and lots of laughs. They are always eager to give back!

Southmountain Children and Family Services was recently awarded a grant for $445.60 by the High Country United Way.  The grant will benefit clients served at the Watauga and Avery County Center of Excellence who are receiving Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy in order to overcome trauma symptoms resulting from abuse, neglect, or other loss.  The grant will be used to purchase gas cards for families who are struggling financially so they can attend all of the 22-24 therapy sessions.    Southmountain is very grateful for this grant from the High Country United Way that will help our clients in need.
