Elevating Students in Our
Current Time of Need

During this time of uncertainty we find that our children are most vulnerable to confusion, fear and difficult thoughts. The staff at ELEVATE Coweta Students, while not at the schools due to closure, are working hard to see that the needs of our students are met. Not only are we spending online time with students to support, counsel, encourage, and uplift them, but we are serving them by taking food to those that otherwise would be without. Most of our students are eligible for free and reduced breakfast and lunch. In this time of community distress, our nonprofit is here to serve those most vulnerable. We along with so many other nonprofits in the community need your support! Any financial contributions will help us continue to serve each and every day not only in these trying times, but in the future as well.
