We were so glad to see Ken Bates from Woodmen of the World this morning. He brought us a donation from Chapter 1881. I have always heard good things about this organization, but we are honored to be the recipient of one of their Civic Projects. We are always in awe of the giving spirit of the Cullman community. When there is a need this community comes through. Again thank you to Ken Bates and Woodmen of the World.
In the month of October, East Elementary School conducted a food drive for Cullman Caring for Kids. This food drive brought in 1,020 pounds of food and just over $1000 in cash. The cash donation will purchase up to 7,000 pounds of food. Cullman Caring for Kids /United Way Food Bank distributes between eight to ten tons of food each month to those in need in the community. The students of East Elementary did an outstanding job and we can't thank Mr. Wiggins and the staff for encouraging their students to give back to the community.
Cullman County Sheriff's Department Litter Crew has collected over 45,000 pounds of trash across county roadways since February 1.
The litter crew has netted over 1,000 pounds of aluminum cans with the money collected by Sheriff Matt Gentry, being donated to Cullman Caring for Kids.
Caring for Kids Executive Director Javon Daniel reports every $100 collected can buy 700 pounds of food. The organization was able to purchase more than 3,700 pounds of food through the assistance by the sheriff's department litter crew.
If a resident wants trash to be picked up from a county road, contact the road crew by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
