With the help of The Alliance, over a dozen local businesses are joining together to give back to Corinth and Alcorn County teachers and support staff.
The Alliance Community Development Director Lane Yoder said all staff members of the Corinth School District and Alcorn School District will receive a free lunch soon after money was raised by local businesses and The Alliance.
“In wanting to show all of our city and county teachers and school employees how much our community appreciates them and their efforts to go above and beyond during the pandemic, The Alliance has been able to organize lunch for every employee in both districts, thanks to many generous contributions,” Yoder told the Daily Corinthian. “I’m sure we speak for the entire Corinth-Alcorn County community in saying thank you to all educators for all they have done for our students.”
Meals were scheduled in the county district to be served on Feb. 15, but due to the winter storms, the lunch was postponed until a later date.
“We are very grateful and excited by this act of kindness our local business leaders are showing to our teachers and staff,” said Alcorn County’s Interim Superintendent Brandon Quinn. “I publicly want to thank all the businesses who contributed, along with Lane Yoder and The Alliance for their work and their efforts in putting this together.”
Businesses contributing financially to help make the lunches possible include Caterpillar, Balfour, OfficePro, Albright Storage Company, Bailey Williams Real Estate, Commerce Bank, Kimberly-Clark, Langley Wealth Management, Long Distribution, NESCO, Refreshments, Inc. and Renasant Insurance. Corinth Coca-Cola Bottling Works contributed financially in addition to donating all drinks needed in each district.
