Atlanta Retirement Living Community Supports Food Drive to Improve Lives of Area Students and Enhance Residents’ Well-Being
Duluth, GA, December, 22, 2011- The residents and staff of Parc at Duluth collected and delivered over two hundred pounds of canned goods last week to support the drive benefiting Berkley Lake Elementary school’s less fortunate students and their families. Additionally, Parc at Duluth’s Resident Association made a monetary donation to further contribute to the cause.
Berkley Lake Elementary School is geographically situated in one of the most affluent neighborhoods in the area; however, the footprint of the school district also includes low income areas. Of the school’s 1,144 students, 60% are participating in the free lunch program. For some of these children, the meal they eat at school is their main sustenance for the day.
The staff and teachers of Berkley Lake started a food pantry to help these children and turned to the Duluth community to magnify their efforts. Judy Young-Doering, Assistant General Manager of Parc’s Duluth campus says the senior community’s outreach will carry on beyond the holiday season, “We will continue to collect canned goods through the remainder of the school year and hope that in some small way we have made a difference to a family in need.”
As an independent senior living and assisted living (coming mid-2012) community known for its chef-prepared restaurant style meals, Parc at Duluth understands the positive impact proper nutrition can make in the lives of Berkley Lake Elementary’s students. Parc Communities is not only helping to fulfill a need, but is also enriching its residents’ lives by strengthening their involvement in the community.
