The Avenue Peachtree City Supports CARE

Eyeglasses, after school tuition, clothes, school supplies, hearing aid batteries, these are some basic needs that donations from the community and The Avenue in Peachtree City are helping fulfill for Fayette’s public school students through the CARE (Children at Risk in Education) program.

The Avenue hosts free community events throughout the year where families can gather, have fun, and make an optional donation to support CARE. During the holiday season, the shopping center offered free carriage rides and photos with Santa, many patrons took the opportunity to give to CARE.

A check totaling over $1,500 was recently presented to CARE Coordinator Karen Spangler that included the community donations as well as a $1,000 contribution from The Avenue Peachtree City.

“We and our families appreciate all that this community and The Avenue does to support our students. Meeting basic needs is essential to a student’s academic success. In this economy, we have a number of families who are barely getting by. We want to help them as much as we can; donations like this enables us to stretch our reach,” says Spangler.
