Recently, the SVCC Southside Virginia Education Center Student Ambassador Organization adopted four local families in the Emporia/Greensville area for the Easter season. The Student Ambassadors and SVEC staff put together food boxes and baskets for each of the families. Each family received two food boxes which included ham, potatoes, bread, canned foods, and all the fixings for a hearty Easter meal. Each family also received large Easter baskets filled with goodies for the children. This outreach project benefited four families including sixteen children.
The SVEC Student Ambassador Organization and the SVEC Staff would like to thank everyone who purchased 50/50 raffle tickets and also Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. Participation with these fundraisers helped purchase the items for this great project. Special thanks to Charles Rullman, Senior Social Worker from Greensville/Emporia Department of Social Services for helping with this project and delivering all the food and goodies to the families.
