There are two events along Windward in the coming weeks that are worthy of mentioning here on Roots. Please consider participating if you are able.
3rd Annual Windward Food Drive
The Windward neighborhood will host their annual food drive to benefit North Fulton Community Charities. Their food bank is always in need of donations, especially as the school year starts. Items currently in high demand are peanut butter, tuna fish, canned meat, breakfast cereal, canned fruit and diapers sizes 3, 4 and 5. You need not be a resident of Windward to participate.
