Bank gives 900 bags of food to ele­men­tary stu­dents

The Catoosa County News - - FRONT PAGE - By Ta­mara Wolk Cor­re­spon­dent

Ev­ery stu­dent at West Side Ele­men­tary and Cloud Springs Ele­men­tary schools went home on win­ter break with a big bag of food and good­ies thanks to Com­mu­nity Na­tional Bank.

Last year, CNB filled 190 bags with food items to send home with chil­dren over Christ­mas break to help make sure they’d have a lit­tle ex­tra dur­ing the hol­i­day sea­son. This year, they filled 900 bags. They also de­liv­ered stock­ings with spe­cial treats to preschool­ers at West Side (Cloud Springs does not have pre-k classes).

“This is one way we en­joy help­ing our com­mu­nity,” says CNB Se­nior Vice Pres­i­dent Natalie Hunt. “We knew last year when we started this project that we wanted to ex­pand it. We were thrilled to be able to do 900 bags this year.”

Hunt and a host of vol­un­teers gath­ered at CNB on Bat­tle­field Park­way in Ring­gold the day be­fore de­liv­ery and spent hours fill­ing bags.
