WHY WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT FOR THIS EVENT:

In these Unparalleled Times,

Help us Feed Students’  Minds!

Sandy Springs Education Force has been at the forefront of supporting the educational successes of financially vulnerable students in Sandy Springs for over a decade. Due to the pandemic, much of our community’s energy since March has focused on ensuring food security for our children and their families. Now, we are beginning an unusual school year. Students have missed so much in-person instruction and we must address a new, urgent issue: the vast educational gap that a lack of in-person instruction will inevitably cause for children whose families have limited means. To help bridge this gap, we plan to provide targeted learning support and outreach programs that will make a difference for these public school students.

Please support our Virtual Footprints for the Future Road Race Event to help our kids stay on track for academic success and graduation!
