At its December meeting, chapter members brought about 150 canned foods to donate to the Grad Polk Student Success Center’s Food Pantry in Polk County.
The Grad Polk Student Success Center’s main goal is to provide assistance for students and their families. The center is providing in-school services related to academic assistance, college admission support services, social-emotional wellness, psychological support, targeted tutoring, a food pantry, a clothing closet, and counseling.
The Grad Polk Student Center mobilizes staff members and partners within the community to equip its students to graduate. The Center provides assistance with all the schools in Polk School District.
“We were delighted to make a donation to the Grad Polk Student Success Center’s food pantry because it is providing such a needed service to the schools in the Polk School District” said Turner. “Students can excel in school easier if they are able to focus on scholastic achievement instead of on basic needs such as when and what will be their next meal”.
