The Johnston County Association of Teacher Assistants (JCATA) partnered with the Department of Social Services for the 2016 Angel Tree project delivering hundreds of gifts to DSS on December 15th.
During the gift drop-off North Carolina Association of Teacher Assistants 1st Vice President Chris Brown and JCATA Angel Tree coordinator, thanked all the teacher assistants for their support of the Angel Tree project. “This is truly a blessing for the children of Johnston County,” said Brown. “I hope this will let the children know they are not left out and the teacher assistants are thinking about them during the holidays. The TA’s in Johnston County always put our children’s needs first before ourselves.”
“The Angel Tree event was a tremendous success and I believe this shows the hearts of our TA’s. When we are asked to do something outside of the classroom, we pull our resources together and we get it done,” said JCATA President Fred McClamb.
This is the eighth year the Johnston County Association of Teacher Assistants has been part of the Angel Tree project, and this year 15 of Johnston County’s schools participated.
