Reaching Out: Walking By Faith

Walking By Faith

School Donations

The George Washington Food and Supply Drive was started by school counselor, Anthony Winters, in 2020 after noticing the deep need in the school and community. The response has been wonderful, and on average, we’re able to provide more than 50 bags of groceries and supplies to families in need each week.

Below are additional details for how community members can support.
