J.C. Price American Legion Post 107 and Unit 107 Auxiliary donated more than $300 worth of food snacks, drinks, fruits and other food items to the Essie Mae Kiser Foxx Charter School in East Spencer on March 23.

Gov. Roy Cooper announced a state of emergency to help mitigate the spread of the coronavirus and, as a result, the school was closed until further notice. The mission of the school includes promoting academic excellence and cultivating confident lifelong learners and leaders. The school can accommodate 150 students-grades kindergarten thru third grade. (Long-range plans include eighth grade)

Mae Carroll, commander of Post 107 said the American Legion’s pillars of service include Veterans Affairs, rehabilitation, national security and children and youth.
