Newnan High School; More Times to Help Our Veterans

First let me know say thank youo to all of those that made it out to ChikfilA on August 31 to support the local National Guard soldiers. The 2 stores here in Coweta County raised over $4,000. The store that we worked with on Bullsboro Dr. raised around $2,700 of that amount- way more than half of the total amount. Thank you!

I want to let you know about a couple of ways you could really help Newnan High School with our school veteran programs. Many of you over the years have asked us if you could help us by donating money which we have always refused. However, as money has gotten tighter during tough economic times, it has gotten more difficult for our department to raise the money we need to put on the kind of programs involving veterans that we would like to put on. To help us out, both ChikfilA and Sprayberrys BBQ have agreed to give us a percentage of sales on a designated night, just like they did with the National Guard. The price for the food does not change- you pay what you normally would pay; but the company gives us a percentage of the sales during that evening to assist us with our program. Therefore, the more people that come out to purchase food on that evening, the more money that we get for our program. You can come into the dining area, get takeout or you can go through the drive through. Easy for you and us!

We hope that you will help us by coming by ChikfilA and Sprayberrys on the nights listed below. Most of the History Department staff will be there on the designated nights to meet and thank you for your help! The first night will be a week from Monday…Monday, September 21!

We really need your help! Please plan on coming by these eating establishments, get some good food and help us out!! Bring your friends and family!!
