In a heartwarming display of community spirit, Pulaski County Public Schools joined hands with Virginia Tech's Cornerstone Alumni organization to ensure students don't go hungry. On March 27th, over 20 volunteers from both institutions came together to assemble 350 snack bags brimming with essentials like soups, oatmeal, and peanut butter.

The initiative aims to support students across all seven schools in Pulaski County by providing them with nutritious snacks to take home over the upcoming week-long Spring Break. With the combined efforts of volunteers, these bags were meticulously prepared, ensuring each one was packed with care.

This collaborative effort not only addresses immediate needs but also underscores the power of partnership in fostering a stronger, more caring community. As schools and alumni unite in this endeavor, they exemplify the spirit of compassion and solidarity, leaving a lasting impact on the lives of Pulaski County's students.

“We certainly appreciate the opportunity to partner with Virginia Tech and other groups in an effort to provide additional opportunities to our community for those who may be dealing with food insecurities,” Pulaski County Public Schools Superintendent Rob Graham said. “We feel like this program, along with the others that we already have in our school system, allow our students and families to enjoy a spring break filled with relaxation, peace, and the knowledge that there are people willing to help community members in need.”
