The Rotary Club of Centre recently administered a Food Drive through the Cherokee County School system. The drive resulted in approximately 6,500 cans – and $355 in cash – being collected and delivered to the Family Care Center. All County schools participated in the drive this year. Jay Prater, the JAG Instructor at Cherokee Career & Technology Center and all his students assisted with unloading and sorting food at the Family Care Center.
Gadsden State Cherokee also took part, and has extended their collection deadline to help gather as much food as possible this holiday season.
