  • Help us help our community!

    If any local businesses would be able to donate t-shirt bags (new unopened cases), the Alexander County Schools Child Nutrition Program would really appreciate the generosity. We are packing up to 4,000 meals per day, free to students 18 and under, and our supplier is out of bags. So far, Walmart, Peoples Drug, and Lowes have generously donated bags. Any help would certainly be appreciated. If you can help, please email
