NASHVILLE — The Nash County Public Schools social worker team organized and sponsored a district-wide community service project that raised more than $5,000 for community partners.

The project raised $5,395.25. The money raised will be donated to the following agencies:

• Jo Ann’s Place, a children’s advocacy center for Nash, Edgecombe and Wilson counties. This agency provides forensic interviews, medical evaluation and other services to children who have been abused and neglected.

• Special Olympics, which offers students with different abilities an opportunity to compete in games designed to maximize individual strengths.

• Faith Chrisitian Ministries, which provides furniture, clothes, baby items and financial assistance to families in need.

• Autumn Care, which provides housing and care to the elderly and others who need assisted living care.

“All of these agencies provide valuable assistance to the families in our community. We are very happy and excited to donate all of the funds raised to these organizations,” said Christine Catalano, the school district’s executive director of strategic planning and engagement.

The district’s social workers are Sheila P. Pittman, lead school social worker; Cynthia Pritchard, Laysha Williams, Renee Kerns, Christina Turner, Samatha Andrews, Latrice Woodard and Monesha Battle.
